Gerry Ryan

I’m a conservation scientist working on Southeast Asian and Australian biodiversity. I use and develop quantitative analytic methods to solve conservation problems, and consult to a range of clients.

My work encompasses a range of species including dolphins, ibises, and vultures, and covers diverse fields including risk assessment, behaviour, effectiveness evaluation, Bayesian hierarchical modelling, social research, wildlife monitoring and demography, and basic ecology. I specialise in particular in risk assessment and monitoring.

I serve on conservation working groups for Mekong dolphins and Cambodian vultures, and am a member of the IUCN/Species Survival Commission Cetacean Specialist Group.

Right now I’m based out of the Quantitative and Applied Ecology Group in the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne.

My publications all available for download here, and my google scholar profile is here.

I can be contacted at gezryan@gmail.com.
