Dr Ayesha Tulloch

Web page

Ayesha is a conservation biologist interested in monitoring and management of threats to biodiversity. She integrates disciplinary perspectives (economic, social, political and environmental) to evaluate approaches for prioritising conservation investments in multiple stakeholder landscapes. Ayesha has a particular interest in invasive and mobile predators, network theory, return on investment, migratory species and bird ecology.

Ayesha is currently working on tools and approaches for prioritising investment in management and monitoring of multiple species and threats, with a focus on applying decision-making software for systematic conservation planning and cost-effectiveness analysis to choose between actions for species recovery, and incorporating uncertainty in management outcomes and risk aversion into ...

Dr Leonie Valentine

Web page

Leonie is a wildlife biologist with broad interests in conservation biology and ecology, particularly focussed around the link between the environment, fauna and human-mediated disturbances. Her research seeks to understand how and why fauna respond to disturbances; the role of fauna in ecosystem function; and, adaptive management strategies available for land managers. Leonie is a post-doctoral research fellow with Prof. Richard Hobbs in the Ecosystem Restoration and Intervention Ecology lab at the University of Western Australia as part of the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED). Her current research examines aspects of fire management and conservation, the role of fauna in restoration ecology, including the ecosystem dynamics of digging mammals and ...

Dr Kerrie Wilson

Web page

Kerrie Wilson is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow (and UQ Node Leader for CEED and The NERP Environmental Decisions Hub). Kerrie is interested in applied conservation resource allocation problems, such as where to invest limited resources to protect biodiversity, to restore habitat, or manage systems. Her research program also focuses on the analysis of uncertainty (with a particular focus on the impact of climate change and other institutional and socio-political factors that influence the likelihood of investment success), landscape dynamics (e.g. the evaluation of land use scenarios and threatening processes), and biodiversity benefit (e.g. how to maximise biodiversity outcomes in restoration and ways to account for multiple benefits such a ...

Dr Kara Youngentob

I completed a PhD in Environment from the Australian National University in 2010 and a MSc in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida in 2004. My main interests are in applied ecological research to inform and improve wildlife management and conservation decisions. I am also a big fan of science communication. My current project for the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub involves investigating how forage quality might influence landscape use by koalas and other leaf-eating animals. I am also developing tools to map the quality of forage for browsing herbivores using airborne hyperspectral remote sensing data. In addition, I contribute to the development of derived remote sensing products, such as forest canopy ...
