Dr Stephanie Pulsford

Honorary Lecturer

Stephanie works as an ecologist for the ACT Government in the Conservation Research unit and is a Honourary Lecturer with the Fenner School of Environment and Society. Stephanie's works focuses on conserving native terrestrial fauna, with projects spanning threatened species such as the Grassland Earless Dragon, to feral vertebrates such as deer.

Stephanie completed her PhD on reptile and frog ecology and conservation in agricultural woodland landscapes. Her doctoral research explored how different management actions in grazing landscapes affect populations. She also tutored undergraduate classes at the ANU and was an associate of the Centre of Excellence in Environmental Decisions.
