    I am currently working on advanced detection techniques for threatened koala populations, which incorporate remote sensing, drones/RPAS, thermal imaging and machine learning. In my previous research experience I have explored the genetic and chemical defences of native Australian trees to invasive insects, possible explanations for cryptic colouration in invertebrate species, and genetic/chemical factors impacting sperm competition in crickets. I have a B.Sc in Zoology with Distinction from Western Sydney University, and I’m currently working on my Master of Philosophy (Bioscience) thesis at QUT. My research interests include conservation of native Australian species, development of new survey methods/models for ecologists, and biosecurity.
