My research has focussed predominantly on the ecology and geomorphology of coastal environments. Early research (MAppSc) analysed the growth and bio-geomorphological development of a former flood tide delta in the River Murray Mouth estuary. More recently, (PhD) research focussed on the spread and potential impacts of the invasive, introduced grass Thinopyrum junceiforme along the Coorong foredune.

I am currently employed as an administrative assistant in the School of Social Sciences.
