About Me

Rolf has a background in Natural Resource Management focusing on Koala ecology, conservation, education, ethics and history through his work with Koala Research - CQ (School of Health, Medical and Applied Science at CQUniversity). His PhD research modelled koala roadkill blackspots and involved radio-tracking and handling of koalas, disease and diet studies. Rolf has more than 25 years’ experience in wildlife and vegetation studies, in Victoria (Vic) and Queensland (Qld). He has also been a high school teacher of senior mathematics and science in both states and is now pursuing his combined passions of research and teaching by working in CQU’s STEPS program within the School of Access Education.
