My research interests have focus mainly on the social structuring of reptiles and how lizards use chemical and visual signals to communicate with each other. I am also interested in behavioural ecology, host-parasite interactions and conservation ecology. Much of my work to date has focused on endangered reptiles (pygmy blue tongue lizards and slaters skink) and understanding how their behaviour and interactions with each other can be used to better conserve them and their habitat, through informed management decisions. I am also interested in how their behaviour may facilitate disease spread through the population which can have implications for relocation and translocation programs, as well as the potential effects of changing climatic conditions that may expose species to new novel pathogens.
