Aloha! I come to the team from Sydney, Australia. Broadly, I am interested in the impacts of climate change and associated environmental perturbations on the movement, behaviour and physiology of target and non-target fisheries species. For my PhD, I used acoustic telemetry to investigate the influences of ocean temperature on the movement patterns, home range and feeding behavior of an important tropical fisheries species on the Great Barrier Reef. At SharkTagger, I am using my telemetry skills to help analyze shark movement data in order to enhance information for fisheries managers to help make informed decisions about the protection and sustainable use of fisheries and associated bycatch.
