FLAME University

Prof. Andrea Phillott has broad experience as a field and laboratory research biologist and a specialised research focus on the biology and conservation of sea turtles and other marine megafauna in South and Southeast Asia and Australia.

She applies research methods from the biological and social sciences to understand threats to wildlife and habitats, their sociocultural importance and conservation needs, and to design and assess conservation practices. Her most current research assesses sea turtle hatchery management practices and other factors effecting hatchling production, and turtle-fisher interactions. Prof. Phillott’s teaching is informed by a secondary research focus on discipline-based education research in the biological sciences and environmental studies.
