I am a Technical Officer in the Animal Science Program of the Science and Conservation Division. My background has mostly involved managing threatened and pest birds and mammals throughout Western Australia.   


My main area of expertise is avian ecology and management mostly in relation to pest and threatened birds including translocations, monitoring and population control. I have significant expertise in trapping, marking and monitoring birds for research and control purposes.
