Sarah Fischer is a PhD student with the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods. Her Principal supervisor is Dr Andrew Edwards. She received an Associate Diploma of Applied Science from the Northern Territory University (NTU) in 1995 and went on to do a Bachelor of Science majoring in biological science. This was followed by an Honours degree studying the predation of birds’ nests in the monsoonal tropics. Taking a break from studying, she then worked as an analytical chemist, analysing water samples from industrial operations at a laboratory in Berrimah. Upon returning to work and study at Charles Darwin University, she completed a Master of Science by Research investigating the effect of fire on the breeding ecology of Grey-crowned Babblers. This project stimulated her interest in GIS and remote sensing and the impact of fire on the fauna of the Top End which has resulted in her current PhD project.
