What are your research interests as they relate to northern Australia?

Land use options and trade-offs in the Fitzroy catchment in Western Australia. We are helping the community understand the outcomes that are likely under different development scenarios, and teasing out the trade-offs that are likely to occur.

What do you love about working in northern Australia?

I love the landscapes, the space, the night skies and meeting the people. The flora and fauna are wonderful, and the isolation from hustle and bustle is great. The Fitzroy catchment in Western Australia is my favourite place to work.
