My research revolves around marine ecology and aquaculture, in particular in relation to the cultivation of oysters. Most of my previous research focused on the Sydney Rock Oyster but currently I am working on a disease related to Pacific Oysters. A number of projects that I am currently involved in are included in this industry website: http://www.southcoastoysterindustry.com.au/ In addition I also work in the Natural Resources Branch of Hornsby Shire Council as an Environmental Scientist working on the implementation of the Lower Hawkesbury Estuary Management Plan.
