Dr Libby Rumpff is a postdoctoral researcher with the Quantitative & Applied Ecology Group in the School of Botany, University of Melbourne. Her current research interests revolve around adaptive management and structured decision making for environmental management, with a focus on developing science-based tools and methods to improve decision making for natural resource managers. She is particularly interested in the management and restoration of vegetation condition and habitat.

Libby has a background in conducting and analysing ecological research on the structure, composition and function of ecological communities, focusing on the trajectories of change in vegetation condition in response to land-use practices and changing environmental conditions.  Her PhD (2009) research investigated the response of the alpine tree-line in the Victorian Alps to historical changes in land-use, wildfire, and climate change.
