I am a fisheries scientist and biodiversity enthusiast living in Perth, Western Australia on Whadjuk Noongar country. My passions are sustainable wild-capture fisheries, shark and ray conservation biology, and data science. I work in the public sector on activities relevant to ecosystem-based fisheries management. My current work principally involves developing a fisheries research and monitoring program for the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
Since 2013 I have independently maintained a research program on sharks and rays. In particular I am interested in the life histories of these taxa as they relate to sustainable management and conservation. Some of the outputs of my research have been featured by news outlets such as the Washington Post, Nature News, and National Geographic.
