Lily Wheeler

PhD Candidate

Lily is a PhD candidate investigating the effect fire regimes and a changing climate have on biodiversity, with a focus on mammal species. She is interested in using a combination of field data and simulation modelling to predict how populations will change over time. Lily completed her Master of Science (Ecosystem Science) in 2020 where she examined how landscape properties of fire and vegetation shape the native small mammal community of western Victoria. Outside of work, Lily enjoys reading, hiking, and spending time with her dogs.
