    Research interests
    Quantitative marine ecology and conservation, biogeography, population connectivity, network theory, landscape ecology and geographic information science. We use a variety of tools, including spatial dynamic modelling, spatial statistics, network analysis, HPC programming, geographic information system (GIS), and remote sensing.

    Potential MPhil/PhD projects :
    • Exploring the geographic patterns in marine population connectivity and the influence on genetic and biogeographic patterns.
    • Metapopulation dynamics and resilience in the rocky reefs of Port Phillip Bay, Victoria.
    • Understanding the recruitment and persistence in Victorian abalone and rock lobster fisheries using ecological modelling and local habitat assessment.
    • Quantifying animal movement through habitat networks for conservation prioritisation.
