Justine Shaw is a Research Fellow examining conservation decision making in the terrestrial Antarctica and sub-Antarctic, with a particular focus on non-native species. Her position is a collaborative one between CEED, the University of Queensland and the Australian Antarctic Division.
Justine is currently examining the risks posed by non-native species to Antarctic protected areas and the role of climatic change in conservation planning for Antarctica. She is also quantifying human movements within Antarctica and investigating how sub-Antarctic island ecosystems respond to pest eradications to inform conservation decision making. Justine has a wide global research network, having worked in Australia, South Africa, sub-Antarctic/Antarctic and the Arctic.
She is subject editor for several journals and a co-founder of the Women in Polar Science Network.
