My field of research is on prey-predator relationships and interactions with their environment using little penguins as case study. Together with collaborators , we have been using more sensitive variables such as foraging efficiency, presence/absence of thermoclines, foraging-trip-duration, isotopic niche analysis, fractal diving analysis and new spatial temporal scales to detect penguin’s response to environmental changes, complementing traditional variables of population size, mortality or survival. I am on the editorial board of PLoS ONE, Heliyon and Open Journal of Ornithology, editor of the Australasian Seabird Group Bulletin, executive member of the recently created IUCN Penguin Specialist Group and affiliated to the Monash University.
