I am involved in research on shorebirds, gulls, terns and penguins here in Tasmania. I am also involved in coastal management.

I am undertaking extensive surveys of beach-nesting birds, mapping territories and colonies by GPS and collecting population data to establish baselines for these species.

At present, I am supervising a number of higher-degree students working on impacts of sea-level rise on coastal birds and on local populations of gulls, terns and shearwaters.
