Lizzy Lowe

I am a postdoc in the Behavioural Ecology Group at Macquarie University, and my research investigates in the social and environmental factors that drive biodiversity and species interactions in cities.

I am fascinated by the ability of some “urban exploiting” species to thrive in highly modified environments and I am investigating the traits that allow them to do this.

A focus of my work is looking at the impact of urban insecticide use on invertebrate predators and I love studying anything to do with spiders. I am also passionate about working with local communities to share my love of “creepy crawlies” and help create sustainable green spaces in cities.
