Personal profile

Research interests

Amanda works as a research associate on the NESP Threatened Species Hub project 'Strategic Planning for the Far Eastern Curlew'. She is investigating the ecological needs of this critically endangered migratory shorebird. She is specifically looking at how the species interacts with the coastal environment during the non-breeding season. The project is a partnership with Larrakia Rangers and is funded by industry partner Darwin Port. 


Amanda is also interested in the trends of migratory shorebirds across Australia, with a special interest in grassland species such as the Little Curlew.
