I am a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide. My research focuses on understanding the domestic pet trade of Australian native and exotic birds, and adapting forensic technology to trace their origins.
The wildlife trade transports animals worldwide, which threatens primary industries and environments by introducing new invasive species and by removing species from their native habitats. Despite these threats, we currently have no way of knowing the true origins of this wildlife. For my PhD research, I am investigating the extent of the domestic parrot trade in Australia, and looking at new ways to trace the origin of these parrots using the chemical signatures in their feathers.
