Elle Bowd is a Research Fellow at the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the ANU College of Science.

She works across several ecological research projects on Australian eucalypt forests and woodlands. These include projects in Booderee National Park, rural NSW temperate woodlands and the long-term monitoring research program in the Mountain Ash forests in Victoria, led by Professor David Lindenmayer.

Dr Bowd’s primary research focus has been on understanding how ecosystems respond to and recover from wildfire and logging, and the ecological responses associated with the restoration of cultural fire by First Nations Peoples. She has a long-standing interest in forest and woodland ecology, traditional Indigenous ecological management and above and below-ground ecological interactions.
