My PhD project focuses on the spatial ecology of the southern hairy-nosed wombat and European rabbit in the Nullarbor region. Using a combination of fieldwork, remote sensing, and species distribution modelling, this work aims to better understand niche interactions and the population status of fossorial species across Australia's remote semi-arid landscape at varying scales of interest. Subsequently, this project will resolve critical data gaps that have previously prohibited effective conservation and pest management in this region.
