PhD Students & Opportunities
We are involved as co-supervisors with students from a range of Universities, particularly the University of Tasmania. Prospective students are invited to contact us to discuss potentials projects in our area of TEPS expertise, particularly around fisheries interactions, climate impacts and adaptation, and marine pollution.
Our research interests are described on the Team page. Current students and their projects are listed below.
|Kelsey Richardson||Kelsey is researching the amounts, types, fates and impacts of fishing gear loss from major commercial fisheries around the world.||Denise Hardesty,
|Sierra Ison||Sierra’s project aims to adapt the framework of outcome mapping to enhance conservation action using a comprehensive case study of the Northwest Shelf Flatback Turtle Conservation Program.||Gretta Pecl,
Ingrid van Putten,
|Edie Bishop||Edie is developing deep learning technology to identify se snakes in prawn trawler bycatch, which will aid in bycatch monitoring and enhance understanding of sea snake population dynamics and conservation status.||Rich Little,
