Associate Professor / ARC Future Fellow
Research Group Leaders

My research group takes an integrative approach to studies of the ecology and evolution of freshwater fish, amphibians and reptiles. We are particularly interested in the types of responses animal's exhibit to variation in the environment, such as seasonal or long-term changes in temperature. We also try to understand what these responses mean for their ecology in the field. These studies are being complimented by work on freshwater crayfish, frogs, tadpoles and snakes and we are also becoming increasingly interested in the consequences of human-induced changes in our environment on our urban wildlife, particularly in south-east Queensland.
