My main area of research is in the field behavioural ecology with a particular focus on understanding the causes and consequences of variability in mating systems, the role of chemical cues, and most recently the impact of artificial night lighting on individual fitness and community structure.
I am a founding co-director of the Australasian Dark Sky Alliance (ADSA - https://www.australasiandarkskyalliance.org/) an independent non-profit organisation formed to educate and increase awareness about the importance of maintaining the night sky.
