I’m a Senior Research Fellow jointly appointed at the University of Melbourne and Monash University.

I’ve spent the past 15 years translating my mathematical training into models and advice for environmental management. I am most interested in how we can best monitor and manage species and systems in the face of incomplete knowledge (adaptive management) and data (imperfect detection).

I aim to engage directly with the environmental management challenges faced by practitioners, and have partnered with government agencies, NGOs and community groups on issues of threatened species conservation, invasive species control and sustainable hunting. I love to collaborate – with ecologists and other environmental specialists, with practitioners with local ecosystem and operational knowledge, with economists, and with fellow mathematicians and statisticians.

Projects I’m currently working on include:

  • Accommodating transaction and monitoring costs in optimal adaptive management with Chung-Huey Wu & Mick McCarthy
