Personal profile


I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Western Australia. My research focuses on better understanding how coastal marine ecosystems (principally algal assemblages and seagrass meadows) respond to marine heatwaves and climate changes. Seaweed and seagrass are important marine foundation species that facilitate other organisms in the community. The process of facilitation is something I find particularly fascinating amidst a warming world, as crucial trophic linkages between these primary producers and higher-order consumers may change, with wide-ranging implications on the wider food web. My highly collaborative research combines field observations, experimental manipulations, and geospatial analysis. An important goal of mine is to inform management practices that may enhance the resilience of important coastal ecosystems.
