Daniel Gautschi

PhD Student

Daniel’s research interests centre around the conservation of native species facing anthropogenic threats. He is currently studying the population dynamics and breeding biology of the endangered Norfolk Island green parrot (Cyanoramphus cookii), under the supervision of Professor Robert Heinsohn. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Science from ANU, also completing his Honours in 2019 on the relationship between regent honeyeater (Anthochaera phrygia) nest success and the landscape scale distribution of nest predators.
