I joined Flinders University in April 2017 as a research associate in eco-epidemiological modelling in Professor Corey Bradshaw's lab. We are currently working with Dr Thomas Prowse and Biosecurity SA to investigate how myxoma virus and rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus affect individual survival of wild rabbits. We will use this information to construct eco-epidemiological models to understand the impact of potential new biological controls (e.g., the protozoan parasites Eimeria flavescens and E. intestinalis) on rabbit populations.

I completed my PhD on the range expansion and potential impact of invasive Asian house geckos in natural environments at James Cook University in 2017.
