Emily Gregg

Emily is a PhD student within the Interdisciplinary Conservation Science Group (ICON Science) and NESP Threatened Species Hub.

Emily’s research is focused on improving communications for public engagement with threatened species conservation, particularly so-called “non-charismatic” taxa such as reptiles, rodents, and invertebrates.

She completed a Master of Science (Zoology) at the University of Melbourne, where she investigated the feasibility of a waterless barrier to halt cane toad spread in Western Australia.

Since then she has worked as a Research Intern at Arid Recovery, a conservation reserve in South Australia, and developed a passion for effective public engagement and science communication.
