Profile

Biography

I did my PhD at the University of Queensland, then spent a few years in the UK, first at the Institute of Zoology, then at Imperial College London, before returning to Australia and joining ANU in 2008.

Research

Research interests

We work on a range of questions in macroecology, macroevolution, biogeography, community ecology, and conservation biology, mostly using a comparative or computational modelling approach. We are primarily interested in how we can infer the kinds of evolutionary and ecological processes that have shaped the patterns of biodiversity that we see today.
