About Me

I am a PhD student originally from Melbourne. I completed my Bachelor of Science majoring in marine biology at James Cook University in Townsville, before continuing to complete Honours looking at the effects of habitat degradation on larval reef fish. During my studies I also volunteered and worked with the JCU Turtle Health Research Group. Following this I moved to Brisbane in 2021 to commence my PhD with the Marine Sensory Ecology Group at the University of Queensland. 

Research Directions

I have a wide interest in marine biology and ecology, especially behavioural and visual ecology. My current PhD research is focused on investigating how marine animal colour patterns are perceived by reef fish.


2020 – BSc (Hons; Marine Biology); James Cook University, Australia

2021 – PhD; University of Queensland, Australia
