I am an ARC DECRA fellow and senior lecturer in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science. My work focuses on the integration of ecological research with the application of remote sensing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and spatial statistics across various spatial and temporal scales. I am currently conducting research on modelling extent of surface water dynamics, vegetation response to flooding, connectivity using network analysis and lidar and hyperspectral data for characterising vegetation health. Current projects focus on the Murray-Darling River Basin, an area that covers one seventh of Australia and is subject to competing water demands. Prior work has focused on the southwest of Western Australia (one of the 25 global biodiversity hotspots in the world), the U.S. Great Lakes and Northern Great Plains and the Danube River Basin.
