Personal profile


In 1996 after completion of environmental management degree at Edith Cowan University I joined Alcoa’s mine & bauxite residue rehabilitation research group. Whilst at Alcoa I conducted routine botanical monitoring and researched a range of restoration related topics including; tree growth in restored sites, protecting planted seedlings from herbivore grazing, direct seeding of bauxite residue sand and how fire affects jarrah forest seed banks.
In 2006 I joined the Centre for Land Rehabilitation within Soil Science at UWA as part of a research team investigating the effects of soil fertility on botanical diversity of jarrah forest (ARC linkage project). This included setting up and maintaining glasshouse experiments using jarrah forest plant species. This work was my introduction to mycorrhiza and soil biology.
In 2010 I joined the Ecosystem Restoration and Intervention Ecology research group (ERIE) within Plant Biology at UWA. The main focus of my work in this group has been the setting up of a large field experiment at UWA’s Ridgefield farm and baseline soil biological measurements for this experiment.
