Profile

Dr Gabriel Conroy has a varied research background, starting with an early interest in coastal geomorphology (Coffee Rock) on K’gari-Fraser Island. His current work is predominantly in the field of conservation biology, including research relating to threatened species management and translocations.

Gabriel is also currently focusing on the ecological and evolutionary genetics of threatened animal and plant species, and has several projects underway relating to the K’gari-Fraser Island dingo population. Recent collaborations include working with Bush Heritage Australia to provide a genetic analysis of a threatened species of legless lizard to advise a translocation project. He is also interested in fire ecology and links to indigenous land management. Glossy black-cockatoo feeding ecology (the world’s fussiest parrot) has also become a recent research fascination.

Potential research projects for HDR, Honours and SRP students
