My interests lie in investigating nature-based solutions to have a productive agricultural landscape within ecological healthy catchments that support high water security.

I have experience using networks to model the flow of nutrients through ecosystems, species distribution modelling, in sports fish and game bird management, and working at the interface between freshwater science and policy/planning.

Most recently, I have been working on how wetlands can be incorporated into our landscapes to increase food production, improve water quality or buffer against climate change.

  • Freshwater ecosystem health
  • Agroecology and regenerative agricultural practices
  • Modelling nutrient flows through human and natural ecosystems
  • Agricultural spatial planning
  • The impact of water quality on freshwater ecosystems
  • Using wetlands to improve catchment water quality
  • Using wetlands (including mangroves) to sequester 'blue carbon'
  • The sustainability of food production throughout its lifecycle
  • Nature based solutions
