Dr Ryan Tangney

Research Fellow

 I completed my PhD at Curtin university in 2019, which focused on seed survival and recruitment in fire prone ecosystems. I work closely with conservation agencies to ensure my research is applicable and practical.

My research interests are

  • Disturbance ecology, including weed invasion and fire - and the combined effect of fire and weed invasion.
  • Seed and plant trait interactions
  • Fire ecology and the effects of changes to fire regime
  • Soil dynamics during fire and the utilization of new technology to increase our ability to capture variability within fires.



Based in Perth, WA. Working in collaboration with the Department of biodiversity, conversation and attractions.
