Mr Eli Bendall

Research Officer
Fenner School of Environment & Society, Australian National University

I am a Research Officer at The Australian National University, conducting a review into post-fire management actions affecting fauna. I recently completed my PhD at the University of Wollongong (UOW), investigating the combined effects of fire, drought and elevated CO2 on tree mortality and regeneration in the eucalypt forests of southeastern Australia. I also completed my Honours degree at UOW, where I investigated the effects of climate and fire regimes on eucalypt distributions and mechanisms influencing population processes. I have a particular interest in trees and related aspects of forest and fire ecology, although my interests are broad, spanning most flora, fauna and ecosystems. I also have an interest in data science and Bayesian approaches. I have co-authored several peer-reviewed papers and hope to publish a series of inter-related papers that arose from my PhD project. If I am not at my desk you can find in me in the bush!
