Areas of research strength
'As my project is multidisciplinary, I have been fortunate at Griffith University to have supervisors from different sectors. This has allowed me to have a specialised supervisor for all of my lab specific work, and then a specialised supervisor for all of my field work providing me with the best guidance and support I could have in these different areas.'
