Chris Pocknee

University of Queensland

Chris is a PhD candidate at the University of Queensland, where he is lucky enough to be a part of this project. Originally from Melbourne, Chris completed a Master of Science in 2017 investigating novel approaches to surveying Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo, assessing and modelling detectability under different methods. After completing this, he undertook an internship with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy where he gained a wide range of field skills and an appreciation for the ways science can be applied in the field.

Chris is keen to contribute to the long-term conservation of Australia's unique native fauna through the recognition of key threats and finding ways to manage these. Outside of ecology, his interests lie in sports, travel and exploring as much of the outdoor world as he can!
