Spectrum Ecology was founded by Dr Matt Macdonald and Dr Cam Mounsey in 2015, providing an opportunity to combine our curiosity for the natural world with our passion for innovation and new technology.
Matt has worked in the environmental consulting industry since 2009, including a role as Principal Ecologist at a leading Western Australian consultancy, working across a broad range of environments in the Pilbara, Kimberley, Western Deserts, Mid-west, Goldfields, Wheatbelt, South-west and the Northern Territory. Prior to moving to WA, Matt received his PhD from the University of New England on rangeland weed ecology in western NSW. Matt also has extensive experience in native vegetation management, ecological restoration and weed control roles for local governments and community organisations.
Cam completed his PhD in 2013 at the University of Western Australia. His thesis utilised remote sensing technology to examine post-mining rehabilitation trajectories in vegetation community structure and composition. Cam then spent two years as a Senior Ecologist (Rehabilitation) in the Iron Ore industry, during which time he lead the development of a remote sensing capability for rehabilitation monitoring and the assessment of ecological completion criteria. Cam has field experience in the Pilbara, Western Deserts, Mid-west, Goldfields, Wheatbelt, and South-west.
