Jens is a Geographer and Landscape Ecologist, educated at the University of Freiburg, Germany and The University of Queensland, St. Lucia. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with CSIRO Health & Biosecurity, where he develops methods, workflows and decision support tools that are focused on enabling adaptive management of invasive species and biosecurity risks. Ultimately, Jens strives to do research with impact that is relevant to land managers and practitioners.

Jens' research approach is integrative, drawing on interdisciplinary and cross-institutional education and work experiences. Before joining CSIRO, he has worked for Biosecurity Queensland in various research- and policy-related capacities, completed a PhD project at The University of Queensland on modelling feral pig populations in northern Australia to aid risk-based management of infectious animal diseases, and was a Research Associate with the Quantitative Applied Spatial Ecology Group at the Queensland University of Technology.
