I work within the fields of insect, community, urban and invasion ecology.

My PhD focused on trophic interactions involving the invasive harlequin ladybeetle, native insects and entomopathogenic fungi. This work combined classic laboratory investigations of interspecific competition between predators with DNA gut-content analysis of insects caught in tree crowns. The study provides new insights into consequences of invasive species on urban biodiversity. 

Since moving to Denmark from Australia in 2001, I have completed a BSc at Roskilde University Centre followed by a MSc from University of Copenhagen. Previous projects span pressures of urbanisation on European beetles to predation services provided by arthropods in tropical agroecosystems.
