In February 2018, I joined Global Ecology Lab as an Associate Investigator in palaeo-ecological vegetation modeling for the new ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH). I am working with Professor Corey Bradshaw and Dr Frédérik Saltré. I am also a Research Fellow in environmental modeling and climate change in the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University.
I am particularly interested in the area of 1) Palaeo-Vegetation Modelling to identify the impacts of climate and human-driven landscape change on megafauna extinctions in Australia, 2) climate change impacts on biodiversity and plant species and 3) undertaking risk assessments.
From Feb 2016- Feb 2018, I employed at the University of New England (UNE) as a Postdoctoral Fellow within the School of Environmental and Rural Science. At UNE, I have been involved in teaching GIS, Remote Sensing and Image Analysis courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students (EM334/534 & EM432/EM532). Furthermore, I have been co-supervising several Doctor of Philosophy students and for two of them commenced supervision as from the 2nd December, 2015. At UNE, I was one of the GIS specialists in the Commonwealth Department of Environment Pacific Climate Change Project (a national project carried out at UNE) for the Australian government during 2013 and 2014.
