Career Summary

Biography

Current PhD candidate at the University of Newcastle, Australia, studying the life history and reproductive biology of Australian amphibians. Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in understanding the adaptive purpose of animal behaviours, as well as how species have evolved in response to the selecting pressures of their environment, not only from a natural history perspective but to apply this knowledge to improve the efficacy of management programs. My goal is to acquire further experience in a laboratory position, where I hope to be able to utilise my skills to assist in biology or biochemistry related research.
