I completed my Bachelor of Science at the University of Queensland in 2012, with majors in Zoology and Ecology. I worked for several years as an Ecologist and Fauna Spotter Catcher on projects across south east and central Queensland before joining a consultancy specialising in Wildlife Hazard Management in aviation. I worked there for four years with a focus on birds, flying foxes and managing human-wildlife conflict, during which time I completed hundreds of ornithological surveys, wrote wildlife hazard management plans and trained airport personnel from around Australia in wildlife management techniques. I assisted their sister-company with groundwater monitoring, ecological assessments and in developing flying fox management plans for local governments in northern New South Wales and throughout Queensland.

I am now a Senior Technical Officer on Dr Alison Peel’s project researching the ecology of flying foxes and their viruses. I provide project management for the Australian arm of the multi-national project; I manage reporting, permits, approvals, staffing, and occasionally help out in the field.
