I currently work as a casual academic at Deakin University, Burwood, Australia. I recently finished my PhD at Deakin, under the supervision of Professor John Arnould. My PhD project was focused on understanding the drivers and causes of individual specialisations in seabirds. My study species include little and gentoo penguins, and Kerguelen shags. My research involved the use of animal-borne data loggers to gather information about the seabirds' habitat use and diving behaviour. I use complementary methods such as stable isotope analysis and conventional dietary sampling to study specialisations in diet across different temporal scales. Work on Gentoo penguins and Kerguelen shags is done in collaboration with the Centre d'Etudes Biologiques de Chizé, France.

I am also an Emergency Response Operator at Wildlife Victoria where I help giving native Australian species some welfare. I work as an Outreach and Events manager for Remember the Wild, a nature engagement organisation. And as if all that was not enough to keep me busy, I also work as a dive instructor every now and then, getting people to enjoy the underwater life of Port Phillip Bay.
