Dr Erin Roger

I am a Visiting Research Fellow in the Centre for Ecosystem Science. My research interests include examining how certain morphological, biological and ecological traits confer either susceptibility or suitability of species to various threats. I am particularly interested in examining the susceptibility of fauna (with particular focus on common species) to road impacts.

I am also currently working as a Researcher in the Arid Ecology Lab at the University of New South Wales, where I provide computing, communication and logistic support for ecological projects and programs. I spend a few weeks every three months in the field, largely based at the Australian Wildlife Conservancy’s Scotia Sanctuary in NSW, where I am involved in plant and soil survey and sampling. I completed my PhD in December 2009 at the University of New South Wales, under the co-supervision of Dr. Daniel Ramp and Dr. Shawn Laffan.

My doctoral research examined how wildlife populations are impacted by roads and how this impact varies with scale.
