I am an Ecologist and Senior Lecturer in Environmental Science at the North Sydney campus of the Australian Catholic University.

My research is on the effects of natural and human-induced disturbances on plant and animal communities. Current research interests are:
1. Dynamics of woodland bird and bat communities in relations to landscape characteristics.
2. Trajectories of vegetation restoration after sand mining and fire.
