Mackenzie is a parasitologist with a special interest in parasite conservation biology, parasite community diversity and ecology, and ectoparasite systematics and biogeography. He studied at the University of Melbourne before moving abroad to join the Evolutionary Biology Laboratory at the National University of Singapore. He is presently working on tick taxonomy and ecology in the Australasian region, particularly Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and Singapore, as well as the co-endangered parasite communities of threatened Australian wildlife — including the Tasmanian devil, in collaboration with The Carnivore Conservancy.
