Professor Corey Bradshaw is Professor of Ecological Modelling at the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute. He was awarded the 2010 Scopus Young Researcher of the Year Award, 2009 Andrewartha Medal and 2008 Young Tall Poppy Science Award.
Professor Bradshaw co-directs The Environment Institute’s Climate and Ecology Centre and the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences‘ Global Ecology Group with Professor Barry Brook and has a joint appointment with the South Australian Research and Development Institute (via Marine Innovation South Australia). He is also a member of the Australian Centre for Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity.
Professor Bradshaw has a diverse, multidisciplinary and innovative research portfolio which has and continues to include topics ranging from the dynamics of populations, predicting the vulnerability of species to environmental change, optimal foraging theory, sustainability harvest & density reduction, disease dynamics, vector ecology and environmental drivers of population change, including climate change biology. Specific research foci include analytical and computer simulation modelling, quantitative behavioural ecology, foraging dynamics, impacts of tropical habitat modification on biodiversity, wildlife population management and sustainable harvest, evaluation of the minimum viable population size concept, examining the relative contribution of intrinsic (density regulation) factors on population trajectories and the ecology of invasive species.
