Arian Wallach, PhD
Arian is a Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Compassionate Conservation, University of Technology Sydney. She is an ecologist researching the ecological role of large predators in modern ecosystems that contain both native and introduced species. Her research has shown that promoting dingoes provides better ecological outcomes than killing introduced species. Her work on the ecological role of dingoes featured as a Research Highlight in the journals Nature and Science, and together with a collaborative research team has been awarded the 2013 Eureka Prize for Environmental Research. In 2015 she was awarded a Churchill Fellowship and travelled to India, Israel, Africa and North America to investigate the ecological effects of losing and recovering the Earth's largest predators.
