I am a PhD candidate (student) at the University of Adelaide. My research is looking at how we can use different soil properties to create soil corrosivity maps and predict fence corrosion rates and feral-proof fencing performance in nature reserves. My passion for wildlife conservation and Australian terrestrial ecology has driven my involvement in conservation research, habitat restoration work and species management.

My PhD research is looking at how we can use different soil properties to create soil corrosivity maps and predict fence corrosion rates and feral-proof fencing performance in nature reserves. We are using industry standard methods for classifying soil corrosivity potential in arid and coastal soils and developing user-friendly, Australian-specific soil characterisation/classification tools to better understand fencing material performance in these environments.
