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

My research interests in northern Australia include understanding: the biodiversity patterns on Kimberley islands; the tnfluence of fire mosaics on the demographics of small to medium-sized mammals; the spatial distribution of endemic and threatened species in the Kimberley; and predicting the spread of cane toads to Kimberley islands.

What do you love about working in northern Australia?

I feel privileged to have led a team of highly skilled and dedicated people in learning more about the biodiversity of the majestic landscapes of the Kimberley coastal region.
