I am a passionate young conservation scientist. I'd like to make a difference in Australian conservation through furthering scientific research into reintroduction ecology. I love fieldwork and being in the bush, but also have a great interest in what we can learn through conservation genetics. I am currently working on my PhD exploring how to improve success of red-tailed phascogale reintroductions in South Australia.
