The main focus of my current research is on different aspects of dingo ecology. Specifically, I am investigating the spatio-temporal drivers behind their movement patterns, their diet in the arid zone, how their energy expenditure changes as a function of their surroundings, and the relationship between dingo 'purity' and phenotypic variation. I am also using accelerometers to classify specific behaviours of wild dingoes and study the diet of western quolls, cats and foxes.
