I research mammalian trophic interactions – predation and herbivory – in both natural and disturbed or invaded environments.
My main research themes are:
(1) predator-prey interactions in a changing world
(2) mammalian herbivory on native and non-native plants
(3) chemical ecology and the role of olfaction in mammalian predation and herbivory
(4) urban predator ecology
(5) how animal behaviour maps onto animal physical traits
I generally work with terrestrial mammals and plants, but believe in using the best study system, and drawing on a wide array of expertise and skill through my networks, to answer big-picture questions.
I am currently a Macquarie University Research Fellow
