About me

I am a wildlife biologist.  I work on projects that have a practical application – where improving our understanding of animal physiology (e.g. diet) and behaviour (e.g. habitat selection) can improve their conservation or welfare.  I am more interested in the questions than the organisms, and my research has tested a wide range of scientific hypotheses using organisms from crickets through to giraffes.

I keep my Google Scholar site up to date.

I am part of westernWEB.net – Western Australian researchers working in Wildlife Ecology and Behaviour. We investigate how animals respond to human presence across urban, agricultural and natural landscapes, and contribute to our quality of life.  Follow us on Twitter or on Facebook

Physiology, behaviour, welfare

Research areas

Key projects over the last five years include:

  1. Stray and feral cat biology: predation by feral cats is recognised as a key threat for Australian native wildlife.  Population control of cats requires knowledge about their biology that can inform modelling and therefore selection of appropriate tools. We have been collecting feral and stray cat specimens over the last 5+ years and have carried out analyses of their sex and age, diet, and anatomy.
  2. Invasive animal biology and control: we have recently completed a large project investigating methods for canid control.  Other studies include work on foxes (e.g. diet, predation of native fauna) feral pigs, and feral cats.
  3. Disturbance ecology:  The Centre of Excellence for Climate Change, Woodland & Forest Health funded through the WA State Government was a transdisciplinary research program involving a large team of researchers across a wide range of disciplines: wildlife biology, plant pathology, education, policy development.  The CoE developed research collaborations that have persisted post-funding.  We have been implementing experiments, running the field/laboratory trials, and publishing data over the last decade.
  4. Development of animal welfare assessment tools: I led a research team developing and validating the use of qualitative behavioural assessment (QBA) as a tool for assessment of animal welfare in livestock production species (Meat & Livestock Aust; MLA).  This basic proof of concept research has been followed by substantial further industry funding.  We have also used QBA as a powerful teaching tool, incorporating its use into undergraduate units in animal science and equine health.
