Katie's current research work focuses on citizen science and science communication for biodiversity and conservation.
Her previous projects include eco-physiology of arboreal herbivores and the effects of habitat fragmentation on small vertebrates. She co-founded and managed a leading marine eco-tourism business and has managed citizen science projects to deliver data for researchers.
Katie is Chair of the South Australian Chapter of the Australian Citizen Science Association, and is a working group member of Inspiring SA and the National Science Week South Australia committee.
