Dr Tom Duncan's research has centred on the Tiwi Islands, working with Traditional Owners to investigate the ecology of the Tiwi Island masked owl and to develop management strategies which protect both ecological and cultural values of biodiversity.
Dr Emily Gibson
Dr Emily Gibson's research applied an interdisciplinary mixed methods approach to explore the contribution of small-scale fisheries to food and nutrition security in specialised fishing communities in Komodo District, eastern Indonesia.
Dr Pia Harkness
Dr Pia Harkness's research project examined the implications of marine conservation and rural development policies and practices in Savu Raijua District eastern Indonesia.
Dr Amanda Lilleyman
The aim of Dr Amanda Lilleyman's research was to improve knowledge of the habitat requirements of the shorebirds at a site in northern Australia, Darwin Harbour, which is a terminus for some migrants and a staging post for others
Dr Jennifer Macdonald
Dr Jennifer Macdonald's thesis advances the discussion of the experience of monitoring and evaluation of Indigenous land and sea management programs and collaborations from Indigenous perspectives.
Dr Simon Mahood
Dr Simon Mahood's research project investigated how the conservation of highly threatened species can be achieved against a backdrop of rapid economic growth and environmental change.
Dr Kamal Melvani
Dr Kamal Melvani has engaged in 5 long-term research studies including a multidisciplinary Ph.D. on the social, ecological, financial and nutrition values of forest gardens and an interdisciplinary M.Sc. on the bioremediation of nitrates in groundwater.
Dr Jane Munday
Dr Jane Munday's research asks ‘What model of social and cultural impact assessment will deliver socially, culturally, ecologically and economically sustainable development of North Australia, including the ability of Aboriginal people to determine the type, pace and scale of development on their land and seas?’.
Dr Stefanie Oberprieler
Dr Stefanie Oberprieler has worked in both research and applied sciences on invertebrates across various fields, including taxonomy, paleoentomology, conservation, ecosystem restoration and biosecurity.
Dr Harinandanan Paramjyothi
Dr Harinandanan Paramjyothi investigated the role of competition in shaping northern Australian savannas and the long-term responses of tree populations to fire management.
Dr Cara Penton
Dr Cara Penton’s research aimed to determine whether tree hollows could be a limiting resource for arboreal mammals in the tropical savannas of Melville Island.
Dr Salman Quddus
Dr Salman Quddus's research project investigated the role of native vegetation and management practices for ecological weed control and rehabilitation of disturbed lands in Australia.
Dr Rebecca Rogers
Dr. Rebecca Rogers' research aimed to improve the uptake of weather radar data for ecological research in Australia, with a particular focus on aggregating waterbird populations.
Dr Alea Rose
Dr. Alea Rose studied the microbial ecology of bacteria in the Leanyer Sanderson Wastewater Stabilisation ponds using molecular techniques. In addition to identifying the unknown resident bacteria, Dr Rose’s research also revealed the functional diversity of nitrogen cycling bacteria that contribute to nutrient removal in these ponds.
Dr Sigit Sasmito
Dr Sigit Sasmito is a Wetlands Ecologist who has particular research interests to study the impacts of contemporary global change on tropical wetland ecosystems including peatlands and mangrove.
Dr Alyson Stobo-Wilson
Dr Alyson Stobo-Wilson's research sought to identify the factors that influence the distribution, abundance, and ecology of the savanna glider (Petaurus ariel) in the tropical savannas of northern Australia.
Dr Veronica Toral-Granda
Dr Veronica Toral-Granda's research aimed to understand the role of human-mediated transport on the arrival and spread of introduced species to and within the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.
