Scott Carver

Senior Lecturer
University of Tasmania

Scott Carver is a Senior Lecturer in Wildlife Ecology at the University of Tasmania (specialising in wildlife disease ecology), Regional Representative for the Australian Society for Parasitology, and Chair of Wildlife Disease Association for Australasia.

Scott has a broad background spanning research in Australia, the United States and New Zealand. Since joining the University of Tasmania in 2012, he has devoted a significant portion of his research effort to the ecology, conservation and welfare of wombats with particular focus on sarcoptic mange disease.

Scott’s other major research foci include: disease transmission in North American puma and bobcats; vector-borne disease transmission across Australia; and chlamydial disease in koala and agricultural animals. When not pursuing wombats, Scott like to get out and enjoy the Tasmanian wilderness and indulge on the many fantastic Australian red wines.
