My research aims to understand how the environment can shape animal movement. In particular, I am interested in where animals forage given the complex and diverse range of foraging opportunities within their surrounding environment.
I am currently a post-doctoral researcher on the British Indian Ocean Territory Seabird project, based at the University of Exeter in Cornwall and in collaboration with the Zoological Society of London (2019-2021). This project aims to understand the importance of the BIOT Marine Protected Area for habitat use of non-breeding seabirds in the Western Indian Ocean.
2019 – Present: Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Exeter; ecology and management of tropical seabirds in the Indian Ocean
2015 – 2019: PhD, University of Liverpool; environmental drivers of the foraging ecology of black-legged kittiwakes.
2010 – 2014: MSci, University of Southampton with a year at the University in Svalbard, Norway; bio-monitoring of marine litter using ingestion by northern fulmars.
