I am a biologist with a focus on amphibian diversity, ecology and conservation, and a passion for communicating biodiversity conservation.


My research seeks to uncover and document biodiversity, understand its drivers, and inform conservation decisions.

I focus on amphibians because they have the greatest levels of undocumented diversity of any terrestrial vertebrate group, perform irreplaceable functions in many ecosystems and are being lost at an unprecedented rate.

I love sharing my passion (some say obsession) for amphibians and their conservation, via whatever means. Check out my media page!

I’m based at the Australian Museum Research Institute, Australian Museum & Centre for Ecosystem Science, UNSW Sydney.
