I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in the Faculty of Sciences. Supervised by Dr Liz Reed, Dr Mark Hutchinson and Dr Lee Arnold.

I am a PhD candidate studying Quaternary vertebrate palaeontology. My research focuses on the Naracoorte Caves World Heritage Area fossil deposits and covers the Late Quaternary to the Holocene. My interests are vertebrate palaeontology, taphonomy, and small mammals. I am currently looking at the palaeoecology, taphonomy, and taxonomy of small mammals from the Naracoorte Caves in South Australia over Marine Isotope Stage 4 to MIS 3 during the Pleistocene. My special interest is in Australian rodent species.
