Personal profile


I’m a Marine Scientist, Spatial Ecologist and Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia, with a keen interest in sharks and conservation. I completed my PhD at Murdoch University with the co-affiliations at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, California and the Dyer Island Conservation Trust, South Africa. I have a broad interest in marine megafauna and have specialised in tracking their movements using a variety of techniques. My most prominent study species have been Great White Sharks (Honours, Masters and PhD) and Tiger Sharks (Postdoc), although I've also worked with other sharks, rays, fish, turtles, mammals and benthos at various locations in Western Australia, South Africa, Europe and California.
