I am a postdoctoral fellow within the Centre for Environmental and Climate Research. Here, I am studying how the inter-relationships between pollinator biodiversity and crop pollination services can be harnessed to synergistically enhance nature conservation, socio-economic outcomes for farmers and the sustainability of food production.
Prior to my position within CEC, I completed my PhD in Applied Ecology at the University of New England, Australia. My PhD research focused on improving pollination ecosystem services provided by wild and managed insects to commercial blueberry crops.
