I’m a senior scientist in ecological modelling at the Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research, and an honorary senior fellow at the University of Melbourne.

In my research, I aim to engage directly with the environmental management challenges faced by practitioners and agencies. My work is informed by decision science, and I draw broadly from mathematics, statistics and programming to develop a deeper understanding of the problems we face and propose workable solutions.

Through my roles at universities and now at DELWP, I have partnered with government agencies, NGOs and community groups on issues of threatened species conservation, invasive species control and sustainable natural resource management. 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:



  • Optimally incorporating periodic reassessment into conservation investment with Chung-Huey Wu & Mick McCarthy
