Associate Professor Phillip Cassey
As a trans-disciplinary scientist, Phillip brings critical analytical techniques to the study of invasion ecology, wildlife trade, and biosecurity risk management – areas characterised by complexity and uncertainty.
His research group focuses on analytical, conceptual, and applied techniques for conducting high impact research.
This research has led to significant advances in the discipline of global change biology, and the prioritisation of evidence-based biosecurity decision-making.
Phillip works across the biosecurity continuum with existing funded projects in exotic vertebrates, the wildlife trade, emerging diseases, marine biosecurity, established pests, and transport risks.
