Personal profile

Research interests

Peter is a conservation biologist with interests in marine and freshwater systems, focusing on the collection of life history and ecological information to guide the management and conservation of biodiversity and assess population status and extinction risk. He has a background in fish biology, fisheries bycatch mitigation and fish conservation, particularly in relation to the chondrichthyan fishes (sharks, batoids and chimaeras), from freshwater systems to the deep-sea. He is an active member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission’s Shark Specialist Group (SSG), holding the positons of Regional Vice-Chair (Australia and Oceania) and Red List Authority Coordinator. His work with the SSG centres on undertaking global and regional assessments of extinction risk for the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Peter's current research in northern Australia focuses on the management and recovery of threatened species, in particular sawfishes and river sharks. Additionally, he has an interest in monitoring and managing threatened shorebird and terrestrial bird species.
