Dr Luke Carpenter-Bundhoo
Australian Rivers Institute, Griffith University
Dr Luke Carpenter-Bundhoo is an aquatic ecologist whose research expertise centres around spatial ecology and biomonitoring of freshwater biodiversity. Using various telemetric methods, Dr Carpenter-Bundhoo’s research investigates the hydro-ecological relationships of native freshwater fish to discern water requirements of species inhabiting regulated river systems. His research also uses a variety of biomonitoring techniques to assess the impact of extreme climatic events, such as the 2019–20 ‘Black Summer’ bushfires and 2022 eastern Australian floods, on native aquatic species. Working closely with government, natural resource management groups and Traditional Owners, his research aims to inform targeted conservation and environmental management and monitoring practices.
