I am passionate about amphibian conservation, and have a keen interest in taxonomy and conservation biology. I previously completed a Bachelor of Science (Zoology) at the University of New England, and I have recently completed an Honours project at UNSW Sydney and the Australian Museum, for which I examined variation in banjo frog advertisement calls using FrogID submissions.

In my spare time I volunteer as a WIRES rescuer, and enjoy birdwatching, kayakking, and bushwalking.
