About me

pia.jpgI’m a conservation scientist with theĀ ICON Science group at RMIT University, and focus on highly modified, human-dominated landscapes. I like to use combined approaches from across ecology, the social sciences and decision theory to answer questions vital to successful conservation under realistic social and economic constraints, and to understand how the management decisions we make today will impact on wildlife populations into the future.

My research themes include behaviour change interventions, wildlife management, conservation planning, habitat surrogates, biodiversity policy, urban ecology, human-wildlife conflict, and whenever possible, bats.

Aside from my research I am also a member of the DELWP Scientific Advisory Committee, I sit on the Board of Wildlife Victoria, I am an Associate Editor for the journals Animal Conservation and Biological Conservation, and I co-coordinate the Wildlife Management subject at the University of Melbourne.
