Welcome to my website! I am a zoologist and science communicator from Australia. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the Insect Ecology Lab at the University of New England where I research how animals communicate with each other, how they deceive each other, how they perceive the world around them and what ecological impacts their behaviour has. Schools and community groups can get involved in the research I do by taking part in the Tiny Gardeners Project. Prospective students and collaborators should check out my research page to find out more about what I do, and feel free to contact me via email.
I am on the board of directors for In Situ Science and host the In Situ Science podcast. Subscribe to the podcast and hear stories about scientific discoveries straight from the scientists themselves, or visit the YouTube channel to see what science looks like behind the scenes. I enjoy getting involved in as much science communication as I can, so for bookings and enquiries about science outreach and events drop me an email and say hi!
Also… if you have read this far you should listen to me speak about a very pressing scientific issue at BAHfest 2016.
