Eloise is based in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
I am an early career Scientist with a particular interest in the interactions between wildlife and people; either through the spread of diseases, human-wildlife conflict or the sustainable harvest of fish and game. Through my work experience and education in this field I have developed skills which have allowed me to work in a range of diverse locations with different people. These skills include: Creating and Innovating – I am able to produce new ideas, identify innovative approaches and different solutions for dealing with problems. In my own research I was able to create valid research questions with larger implications for Asian elephant conservation from limited resources and time availability. Enthusiasm – I have the ability to maintain my enthusiasm for projects by reacting positively to change. This positive outlook has allowed me to cope well under pressure and overcome challenges in my work including cyclonic field conditions and difficult clients. Communicating – My international and local experiences have allowed me to communicate with people across language and geographical barriers to work towards a common goal. Throughout my professional career I have communicated Science with influence in many forms including; a press release, poster, presentation, scientific report, critical review, case report and a debate brief. Team work – Working with different people is an integral part of my professional and personal life. I have contributed to group projects and continue to play team sports. From these experience I have gained the ability to overcome peoples differences and fulfill project objectives.
