Andrew’s primary research interests include species’ use of highly transformed habitats, invasive species impacts, and conservation management. He
is particularly interested how invasive species influence native community assembly and function. Recent work has included quantifying novel ecosystem
support of native species, invasive species distribution mapping, and resource use by native species in human-modified habitats.
Andrew’s current research, within the NESP Threatened Species Recovery Hub’s “Saving species on Australian islands” project, involves exploring the
spatial patterns of threatened species and invasive species on Australia’s offshore islands.
Andrew has a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Queensland, an MSc in Zoology from Stellenbosch University in South Africa, and a BSc
in Biological Sciences from the University of California Riverside.
