Biosketch
I actively play in several sports teams, including field hockey and basketball.  I also love wildlife photography and enjoy the coast’s fantastic beaches and fishing in the coral sea and its abutting estuaries.

My Research
I survey, using a sizeable array of underwater cameras, all the major estuaries in SE Queensland.  The scientifically exciting part of this work is that I can determine, for the first time in Queensland, the rates of predation (a key ecological process), the type and diversity of predatory fish, and in which habitats predation is highest and predators are most abundant. This information is needed to better protect fish and their estuarine habitats.
