Personal profile

Research interests

Julian has lived and worked in the NT since 1998. He started work with the Key Centre Tropical Wildlife Management, CDU, in 1999 and has been involved in teaching and research. Between 2007-13 he went on partial secondment to the Northern Land Council where he worked with Indigenous Ranger groups as a Wildlife Enterprise Development facilitator. Julian’s research passion is sustainable use of wildlife and he has worked with Aboriginal people and their communities across northern Australia to identify opportunities and overcome obstacles. This PhD looking at the agribusiness potential of Kakadu plum is an extension of many years working with Aboriginal families and their communities as well as industry, government and other research organisations to progress the development of this industry. In 2019 Julian left Darwin to take up a job with Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand in Environmental Planning.
