Overview

 

I recently graduated from Griffith with a bachelor of science in ECB and went straight into my Honours program under the supervision of Dr. Alison Peel and working with Tamika Lunn.

Research Overview

During my Honours I aim to conduct relevant research into the vegetation composition of Australian Fruit bat roosts.

 

I'm interested in categorising how these vital species pick and choose where to roost and raise their young during their quieter times in the day. Is climate a big influencing factors or is it more tailored to the density of undergrowth? These questions and more are what I aim to answer by the end of my Honours. Conservation is a major passion of mine and I consider myself privileged to be able to work with such a great variety of experts
