I am a post-doctoral fellow in the Environmental Decisions Group, University of Queensland and a researcher in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) and National Environmental Research Program (NERP). My research focuses on looking at the trade-offs and synergies in ecosystem services, sustainable agriculture, food security and how to maximise both biodiversity and social livelihoods.
