Associate Professor in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine, Academic Chair - Postgraduate Studies in Conservation Medicine

About me

I have worked in the field of conservation medicine for 22 years, and am currently Associate Professor in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine and Academic Chair of Postgraduate Studies in Conservation Medicine in the College of Veterinary Medicine, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Murdoch University.

After graduating as a veterinarian I completed a Zoo and Wildlife Medicine Internship, followed by veterinary research at Wanariset Orang-utan Reintroduction Centre in Kalimantan. I was awarded a Nuffic scholarship by the Dutch government to undertake molecular work in the Netherlands for my PhD (awarded in 2001), which focused on infectious diseases and population genetics of wild orang-utans. This research has led to many publications, including two landmark papers on orang-utan genetic diversity and evolutionary history in Proc. Nat Academy Sci USA and Mol. Biol. Evol. I was appointed as a member of the IUCN/SSC Re-introduction Specialist Group in 2001 and the IUCN/SSC Veterinary Specialist Group in 2002.

Since my appointment at Murdoch University, I have continued to maintain research as a high priority, and have obtained research funding of more than $2,700,000. I have been Chief Investigator on two successful ARC Linkage grants, most recently as Principal Chief Investigator. These ARC projects have investigated infectious disease in bandicoots, and translocation as a conservation strategy for ringtail possums. I have numerous collaborations in the field of wildlife disease surveillance, with a strong focus on research in regional-rural areas. This includes research into the ecology and health of threatened Australian wildlife in regional-rural areas in four states (WA, SA, Qld, Tas, NT) with all postgraduate students and research fellows operating in remote areas. I currently have 15 postgraduate research students and overseas wildlife projects in numerous countries including Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand, Nepal, New Zealand, Colombia, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Teaching area

I am responsible for teaching and teaching development in the fields of wildlife, zoological and conservation medicine at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Veterinary students require training in wildlife medicine to enable them to effectively deal with sick and injured wildlife and exotic companion animals that they will encounter working in private practice. Undergraduate training in wildlife and conservation medicine also provides a strong foundation for further postgraduate studies, which can be undertaken by students wishing to pursue a career as a veterinarian working in a zoo or wildlife conservation project. Conservation Medicine is an emerging discipline that involves the integration of veterinary science, conservation biology and public health in order to: advance biodiversity conservation; address issues associated with the inter-relationships between human, animal and ecosystem health; and study the effects of global environmental change on these health inter-relationships.

At undergraduate level, I am responsible for coordinating and/or teaching in Avian, Exotic Pet and Wildlife Practice (VET453), Wildlife and Exotic Pet Medicine Core Clinical Rotation and Advanced Topics in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine (VET545). The Core Clinical Rotation and  Advanced Topics in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine (VET545) were established in collaboration with Perth Zoo, and provide a unique learning experience in wildlife and conservation medicine.

In 2004, I established the Conservation Medicine Postgraduate Coursework Program in order to provide veterinarians with expertise and practical training to enable them to effectively participate in biodiversity conservation projects around the world. The program has been extremely successful and the coursework degrees have become internationally recognised.

There are two postgraduate coursework degrees offered in the Conservation Medicine Program – the Master of Veterinary Studies (MVS) in Conservation Medicine, for which I am the Academic Chair, and the Master of Wildlife Health and Conservation, for which my colleague, Dr Bethany Jackson, is the Academic Chair. One of the major strengths of these postgraduate coursework degrees is their interdisciplinary nature, with students able to select electives from a wide range of disciplines. This training provides expertise to enable veterinarians and graduates from the environmental sciences, to participate in multidisciplinary teams working on wildlife conservation problems which can often only be effectively addressed with such a transdisciplinary approach.

Graduates from our Conservation Medicine Postgraduate Coursework Program have gained employment with a diverse range of non-governmental and governmental organisations including the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in New Zealand; the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia; Perth Zoo; Werribee Zoo, New Zealand Centre for Conservation Medicine, the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Namibia and the World Society for the Protection of Animals, London.

Research areas

As a staff member in the College of Veterinary Medicine in the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, I recognise the importance of maintaining a strong research track record. I am involved in numerous collaborative research projects in the fields of disease surveillance and health of wildlife species in relation to conservation management. Since my appointment at Murdoch University I have obtained research funding of more than $2,700,000.

The focus of my research in the field of conservation medicine involves studying the health of endangered wildlife species within ecological contexts in order to assist recovery efforts to conserve these species. Disease is increasingly recognised as a major threatening factor for wildlife conservation, and emergence of new diseases is often associated with inter-relationships between human, animal and ecosystem health; decreased genetic variation; anthropogenic environmental impacts; and changes in host-parasite relationships associated with ecological change. My research focuses on determining the ecological drivers of disease and the role that disease plays in population declines and extinctions of endangered species.

I have been Chief Investigator on two successful ARC Linkage grants, most recently as Principal Chief Investigator, and a National Environmental Research Program (NERP) grant. These ARC projects have investigated infectious disease in bandicoots, and translocation as a conservation strategy for ringtail possums. I have numerous collaborations in the field of wildlife disease surveillance, with a strong focus on research in regional-rural areas. This includes research into the ecology and health of threatened Australian wildlife in regional-rural areas in four states (WA, SA, Qld, Tas, NT) with all postgraduate students operating in remote areas. I currently have 15 postgraduate research students and overseas wildlife projects in numerous countries including Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand, Nepal, New Zealand, Colombia, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo.

I am also responsible for the Academic supervision of the two postgraduate residency programs (the John Howell Zoo and Wildlife Medicine Residency Program and the Wildlife and Conservation Medicine Residency Program) offered by the Conservation Medicine Program which aim to provide veterinarians with advanced postgraduate level clinical training in wildlife, zoological and conservation medicine.

Awards and grants

In February 2011 I was appointed as a Diplomate of the European College of Zoo Medicine (ECZM) – Wildlife Population Health.

I have a strong research grant track record and have been involved in numerous successful sole or joint grant applications, including ARC Linkage and National Environment Research Program (NERP) grants. These have resulted in a combined research income of over $2,700,000 since appointment at Murdoch University.

In July 2015 I was awarded the Barry L Munday Recognition Award, a national award by the Wildlife Disease Association – Australasian Section, recognising teaching and research in the field of wildlife health.

Events and speaking engagements

I have been an author on numerous conference presentations and have been invited as a speaker and participant to ten local, interstate and international scientific workshops, symposiums and conferences, including as Chair of proceedings. A sample of key invited speaking engagements is below:

- April 2015, I was an invited speaker at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Kasetsart University, Thailand.

- November 2013, I was an invited participant participant in a Population Viability Analysis Workshop for Carnaby’s Cockatoos.

- July 2012, I was the invited speaker to give a presentation on reptile euthanasia in a panel discussion on euthanasia of different species at the 2012 Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART) Conference “Thinking outside the cage: a different point of view” (Perth, 24-26 July 2012).

- April 2011, I was invited to attend the Disease Risk Assessment (DRA) Tool Development Workshop, organised by Conservation Breeding Specialist Group (CBSG) Australasia of the World Conservation Union (IUCN) and hosted by the NZ Centre for Conservation Medicine. This workshop, organised by internationally renowned disease risk assessment experts, resulted in the production of Manual of Procedures for Wildlife Disease Risk Analysis, a publication produced under the auspices of the IUCN and the World Animal Health Organisation (OIE).

- October 2008, I was one of four scientists in Western Australia invited as a Guest Speaker for Dr Jane Goodall’s “Hope for Nature” Lecture Tour, which was held in the Perth Concert Hall.

 

 

Professional and community service

My service to the university, broader professional networks and the community includes participation in several international specialist conservation reference groups, including the IUCN Wildlife Health Specialist Group, the IUCN Reintroduction Specialist Group and the European College of Zoological Medicine, and close liaison with conservation organisations both in Australia and overseas with regards to collaborative teaching and research activities. I have been invited to participate in national and international workshops, such as the Disease Risk Analysis Tool Development Workshop which was organised by CBSG Australasia and NZCCM. I hold the position of Academic Chair for Postgraduate Studies in Conservation Medicine, and am a member of School and University level committees. Community commitments include professional representation on boards/committees of external wildlife organisations, public presentations for conservation groups, student information sessions and media interviews, which are of benefit to the university and the wider community.

Doctoral and masters supervisions

As a staff member in the College of Veterinary Medicine in the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, I recognise the primary importance of training postgraduate research students. I have supervised the successful completion of the 12 PhD degrees. All of these PhD students have since gained employment in academia, non-governmental conservation organisations, zoos and government departments.I have also co-supervised the completion of one Research Masters by Training student and 15 postgraduate students in VET649 Surveillance Research Project Unit (a 12 point dissertation unit).

I’m currently supervising 16 postgraduate students (13 PhD students and three professional doctorate students), and am the Principal Supervisor for 10 of these students.
