I am an amphibian biologist with a focus on amphibian diversity, ecology and conservation, and a passion for communicating biodiversity conservation.
Based at the Australian Museum, Sydney, my research integrates ecological, behavioural, bioacoustic, molecular and morphological data to uncover and document amphibian biodiversity, understand its drivers, and inform conservation decisions.
I am also interested in how interspecific differences in behaviour relate to vulnerability to extinctiondue to threats such as disease, habitat modification and over-harvesting.
My research involves expeditions in search of amphibians in often remote, forested mountains in Southeast Asia, particularly Vietnam.
For more on amphibian research and conservation in Southeast Asia, see this Australian Museum page.
