Amélie Corriveau holds a Bachelor of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, where she majored in Wildlife Biology, with Honours in Primatology. Previously, she worked in television for seven years and conducted ecological research in Canada, Costa Rica, and Uganda with a focus on birds and primates. This multidisciplinary background has given Amélie a particular interest for public outreach and scientific communication. She has broad research interests in animal behaviour, wildlife management and conservation, and applied ecology in the tropics.

Amélie is currently studying the movements, habitat use and diet of the Magpie Goose (Anseranas semipalmata) on mango orchards of the Darwin agricultural region. Working with multiple end-users including farmers, industry partners, government, hunting groups, and conservation agencies, Amélie wants her research to have practical outcomes for the sustainable management of wildlife into the future.
