ARC Future Fellow
Research Group Leaders

My research group studies the patterns and processes shaping biodiversity and their implications for conservation in a changing world. We work on both native and alien invasive species across different continents and at multiple spatial scales, from global to local. We work across environmental gradients ranging from native to human-dominated ecosystems, including urban and agricultural landscapes. We combine in our research fieldwork, field experiments, spatial and temporal analyses of large databases using geographic information systems, remote sensing and other advanced tools. I am a member of the ARC Centre of Excellence of Environmental Decisions (CEED) and collaborate widely globally, and particularly in the Mediterranean. We are interested in how we can wisely and efficiently prioritise biodiversity conservation actions and efforts to manage native and invasive species in both terrestrial and marine environments in the face of global change.
