Researcher biography

Associate Professor Peter Murray grew up mostly in Western Australia and after doing his undergraduate studies (both BSc and Hons) in Biology (majoring in ecology and physiology) at Murdoch University he worked for the Western Australian Department of Agriculture for nearly 10 years (as a nutritionist, during which he did his MPhil part-time through the Veterinary School at Murdoch University) and then did his PhD at the University of Western Australia.  In 1995 he took up a teaching position in the University of Queensland and teaches across a range of disciplines.  His research includes both captive and free-living (native and introduced) wildlife behavior, ecology and management, as well as management of wildlife and small ruminants as pests or as a resource.
