Megan is a PhD student at the University of Western Australia. Her research is exploring farm management practices and how these may interact with introduced dung beetle species, with a key focus on sustainable gastrointestinal nematode control strategies. Megan has had hands on experience working on farms back home in the UK and more recently she held a position at a Farm Business Consultancy prior to arriving in Australia. This has stemmed Megan’s passion in understanding more about the farming industry including what drives management decisions and how agriculture and invertebrate conservation can provide synergistic relationships and results.
Megan graduated from Harper Adams University with an MSc degree in Entomology in 2018 after completing a BSc (Hons) degree in Wildlife Conservation with Natural Resource Management in 2017.
