I am interested in how human-caused disturbances impact ecosystems and species interactions, from invasion biology and plant-animal interactions to large-scale animal movements. I am currently working toward my doctoral degree on the effects of extreme weather events on arid birds of the Australian interior. I hope to apply my knowledge of arid and avian ecology […]
