I am an evolutionary ecologist exploring new ways to (1) understand how natural communities are formed and (2) predict how they will change over time. I completed my PhD with Dr Sonya Clegg and the Griffith University Wildlife Disease Ecology Group. This work blended ideas from disease ecology and biogeography to yield insights into how avian malaria parasites disperse and evolve. Currently a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Prof Jenny Seddon at University of Queensland, I am developing computational phylogenetic tools and adapting techniques from statistical network theory to study how parasites interact with their hosts across urban-wildlife gradients.
