Dr Chris Jolly

Postdoctoral research fellow
Charles Sturt University

Chris is a postdoctoral research fellow working on NESP Threatened Species Recovery Hub Project 8.3.4 at the Institute for Land, Water and Society, Charles Sturt University. His research aims to improve estimates of the impacts of fire on animal mortality.

Chris is a recent PhD graduate from The University of Melbourne, where he investigated the consequences of island arks as a conservation strategy for endangered species and recipient communities. His research demonstrated that evolutionary changes enacted by isolating threatened species away from their threatening processes may undermine the long-term conservation goals of this strategy.
