The foraging and behavioural ecology of mammalian herbivores: how they interact with the plants they eat and with the predators that want to eat them

Ecological interactions with mammalian herbivores: the ways in which plant, herbivores and predators respond to one another on an individual basis, and the implications for populati more...

Are ecological interactions in urban landscapes disrupted by shifts in biodiversity?

There are numerous opportunities for research projects pursuing questions driven by the main themes in our research.  My research group uses multi-species multi-scale approache more...

The influence of microbial interactions on mushroom production

Mushrooms are an economically important food source with an annual retail value in Australia of almost $700 million. Although edible fungi have been grown for many years, knowledge more...

Proprioceptive, vibration-induced illusions of visual motion

Human perception of the world is based on input from multiple senses. This project investigates how proprioception from neck muscles and vision combine to yield perception of object more...

Visual influences on tactile motion aftereffect

Human perception of the world is based on input from multiple senses. This project investigates how touch and vision combine to yield perception of object motion. more...

Adaptation to tactile motion

Our senses convey information about the energy in the environment (such as light or pressure) but not with absolute accuracy. By studying ‘inaccuracies' in perception, such as more...

Perception of motion in touch: Skin stretch and displacement across the skin as motion cues

When a hand moves over a surface, or an object slides across the skin, we feel not only what the surface is like, but the characteristics of the motion itself, such as its speed and more...
