I am a casual academic at Deakin University, where I enjoy teaching biology, ecology and science communication. I have a background in marine ecology and did my PhD thesis on seabird ecology. I also work as a project manager for nature connection charity Remember The Wild, where I lead projects aimed at fostering stewardship for Port Phillip Bay and its connected waterways.
Through my experience working as an Emergency Response Operator at Widlife Victoria, I have gained a keen interest in understanding the relationship between humans and wildlife, particularly in increasingly urbanised environments. I am researching human-wildlife conflicts to understand how humans and wildlife can coexist better.

The Connected to Port Phillip initiative, from Remember The Wild and our dedicated partners, aims to inspire new and stronger connections with this extraordinary ecosystem and support those who work hard to look after it. By telling stories of its unique cultural heritage and amazing wildlife, we aim to help people in our community experience, understand, and care for, their Bay (https://connectedtoportphillip.com/).
