I am a landscape ecologist and a spatial analyst. I am working as an Biodiversity Modeller in the Science Division of the New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage. Both my work and my PhD are looking at delivering spatially explicit models of landscape condition over broad scales. I am undertaking this research in collaboration with CSIRO and Department of Environment and Industry (Victoria). Prior to working as a spatial modeller, I was a field botanist in NSW, and prior to that, I worked as a remote sensing and GIS analyst in the Northern Territory.
