I am a Professor in Ecosystem Management and teach sustainable land management. From time to time, I also teach national park and wilderness management and agroforestry, and help teach ecosystem rehabilitation, sustaining our rural environments, and ecology.

I supervise higher degree and coursework research students in a broad range of ecosystem management, natural resource, sustainable farming, protected area and biodiversity projects.

My current research interests include landscape revegetation and ecosystem restoration; the environmental impact of wild dog control in temperate wilderness and agricultural landscapes; the nature, value and assessment of ecosystem services; invasive native scrub: soil function, erosion, management and biodiversity correlates; sustainable farming and grazing systems; the role and management of biodiversity in production landscapes; tree–grass interactions; fire and protected area management; ecology and management of plant and animal communities; and environmental dispute resolution. Part of my time is committed to the Invasive Animals CRC and the CRC for Spatial Information.

I am particularly interested in how governments, industry, public and private organisations and the community can work together to pursue sustainable development, ecosystem stewardship and resilience-based, natural resource management and planning at local and regional scales.

Presently, I chair UNE's Academic Board, which is the University's peak academic committee.
