Vivitskaia Tulloch

PhD Candidate: September 2012 – Current

Email: v.tulloch@uq.edu.au

Location: Goddard Building 8, School of Biological Sciences

2012-06-15 17.22.08

Viv completed a Masters in environmental management at Newcastle University in 2011, and graduated with first class honours in ecology at the University of Queensland in 2012. Before returning to study at university she has had a diverse professional background working for not-for-profit organisations and scientific R&D companies, with expertise in the field of green technology.

Her PhD project will focus on conservation planning for marine species under multiple threats. Case studies in the coral triangle will be used to investigate how best to manage human impacts on species and habitats at the land-sea interface to support livelihoods using sustainable resource management and protection of biodiversity. She is also interested in developing collaborative approaches for conservation of migratory or far-ranging marine species, and developing novel conservation approaches for improved efficiency and accuracy of conservation investments.

Her supervisors are Professor Hugh Possingham, Dr Carissa Klein and Dr Chris Brown.

Key publications:

Klein, C.J., Tulloch, V.J.D., Halpern, B.S., Selkoe, K., Watts, M.E., Steinback, C., Scholz, A., Possingham, H.P. Trade-offs in marine reserve design: habitat condition, representation, and socioeconomic costs. Conservation Letters. In review.
