Aysegul is interested in ecological or evolutionary questions that she can write equations, and/or some code for. She is currently modelling gene-drive strategies for population suppression.
Micha is passionate about finding ways to conserve and provide habitat for wildlife in coastal landscapes dominated by human activity. She is currently working on assessing waterbird habitat quality in the Coorong (SA) through the Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin project.
Rowan likes discovering why animals occur where they do and why. He uses tiny tracking devices to follow the movements of birds to learn what features of their habitats they rely on most. Rowan is currently using his skills to unlock the secrets of waterbirds in South Australia's iconic Coorong wetland as part of the Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin project.
Thomas is a quantitative ecologist with a particular interest in understanding and forecasting the dynamics of wildlife populations, and informing the management of threatened species. Thomas uses data and models to address applied ecological questions in the fields of wildlife management, fisheries, conservation biology and disease ecology. Very occasionally he is sighted doing fieldwork.
Bec undertakes research and monitoring on threatened birds. Current projects include post-fire bird monitoring on Kangaroo Island and acoustic monitoring of Bassian Thrush throughout the Mt Lofty Ranges. She also Chairs the Threatened Mallee Bird Conservation Action Plan Implementation Team, a tri-state project.

Katie is adapting and creating forensic technologies to trace the origins of animals in illegal wildlife trade.
Meryl is testing and developing occupancy and abundance models for multispecies camera trap surveys. This knowledge will be applied to a mammal community assessment to understand local-scale trade-offs between biodiversity and carbon preservation in tropical Southeast Asia.
