Matthew’s research interests lie in foraging theory, individual-based modelling, energetics, and predator-prey dynamics using state-space models.
Sophie is researching the ecoenergetics of the Western Swamp Tortoise in order to model their translocation viability.
Himali’s PhD focuses on how climate affects the heat budgets of the Australian flying-foxes, Pteropus spp. and the roles of their behaviour, physiology and morphology towards this.
Jacinta’s PhD focuses on the role of physiology and adaptive strategies in allowing species to survive and persist under variable environments from a bottom-up approach, working with Morabine grasshoppers, Warramaba virgo.
