My honours project uncovered so many unanswered questions about restoring urban waterways in Perth so I chose to pursue a PhD. Initially UWA was offering the undergraduate course I was interested in – Zoology – and I continued my studies here because of the research output, facilities, friends and location. I love feeling at home in my research group and being surrounded by inquisitive and inspiring people. My supervisors are really encouraging and compassionate people to work with, so I find my research is very rewarding.
