Personal profile

Research interests

Paul's research mainly concerns how the population biology, ecology and evolution of Australian native wildlife is impacted by human-induced changes to environments, and approaches to reducing those impacts. He works with many excellent collaborators on a broad array of natural systems, spanning many vertebrate and invertebrate groups, and some plants. Research methods include ecological genomics, molecular ecology, field biology. Research systems include bush birds, freshwater fish, arid zone fish and invertebrates, log-dwelling forest invertebrates, mammals.

Supervision interests

I am keen to hear from highly-motivated, dedicated potential PhD candidates who are committed to work on interesting conservation-related biology and aspire to publish excellent work in strong international journals.

Monash teaching commitment

I have taught in diverse undergraduate biology units.

Currently:

Conservation Biology BIO2040

Evolutionary Ecology BIO2022

Trends in Ecology BIO3070
