Personal profile

Research interests

My research broadly focuses on how fire has shaped and maintains the biota of Australia’s tropical savanna landscapes, and how contemporary fire regimes can best be managed for biodiversity conservation, especially in relation to declining small mammals and fire-sensitive vegetation communities. I have a strong interest in the resourcing of fire and biodiversity management through the generation of carbon credits, and much of my work builds the knowledge base underpinning the development of carbon accounting methodologies for savanna fire management, especially those relating to biosequestration. I also work on the large-scale (continental to global) distribution of fire (pyrogeography), seeking to understand the drivers of fire activity, its coupling with vegetation, and the likely impacts of global environmental change.
