I teach in the area of Environmental Science mainly at the post-graduate level, coordinating the Environmental Science stream of the masters programs at The University of Melbourne. I use this blog to support my teaching, which is mainly at the post-graduate level.
I am interested in developing, evaluating and applying models to assist environmental management.
My research spans many areas including detection of invasive and rare species, population dynamics, fire ecology, synthesis of ecological data, ecological indices, and environmental risk assessment. More information about my research is available at mickresearch.wordpress.com.
I am the Deputy Director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED), and a leading researcher in the National Environmental Research Program Environmental Decisions Hub.
I am an honorary associate of The Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology.
