CONSERVATION IN PRACTICE
On-ground field work, management and research in collaboration with landholders.
I am a PhD student in the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science within the School of Earth and Environmental Science at The University of Queensland, Australia. I am interested in the identifying drivers of adoption, and understanding the effectiveness of conservation initiatives — like private land conservation programs — can make towards biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services provisioning.
I am interested in why people choose to participate in conservation initiatives, how programmatic factors related to conservation initiatives help of hinder their adoption or effectiveness of initiatives, and how broader factors related to the social-ecological system may influence the drivers of conservation initiative adoption and the impacts that covenants make towards conservation goals.
Prior to starting my PhD, I graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science from The University of Queensland in 2012 and received first-class honours for my research project on urban restoration and bird diversity in South-east Queensland. I have since gained experience in environmental consultancy for urban and infrastructure development and conservation research projects, for Universities and non-government organisations (IUCN) on projects concerning climate change, invasive species, avian ecology and protected areas.
