Profile:

I am interested in amphibian conservation biology, particularly how ecological, molecular and bioacoustic data can be interpreted with information on threatening processes to inform species preservation. As a Research Assistant in Herpetology I am involved with amphibian biodiversity surveys in eastern Australia and analyzing DNA and call variation to help delineate species boundaries and uncover diversity. 

I am also a programme officer with IUCN Amphibian Red List Authority. In this role I assess the conservation status of Southeast Asian amphibian species for the Red List of Threatened Species.
