We sat down with Johanne Martens, PhD candidate studying the ecology and evolution of Beak and Feather Disease Virus (BFDV) in Australian parrots. She is currently at the Centre for Integrative Ecology at Deakin University in Geelong, Victoria. Over some Black Feather cocktails & hazelnut-chocolate slice, we discuss her early research in introduced Amazon parrots in Germany, avian disease ecology and epidemiology, and the impacts of Beak & Feather Disease Virus in Australia.
