Biologist, interested in ecology, biodiversity, natural resource management. Previously, free-lance musician (french horn).
Overall my research falls into four main areas – movement ecology, individual variation in behaviour, community ecology, and biodiversity and management of natural resources (more info here). I enjoy collaborations and currently I closely work with various groups in the UK and abroad (Switzerland, France, Sweden, Spain, Canada, USA).
I am Associate Editor for the Journal of Animal Ecology and Methods in Ecology and Evolution and Review Editor for Endangered Species Research. I organize the Biosciences Departmental Seminar series (see here), the Science Club series (see here) and the Swansea Biology – Mathematics Meetings. For frequent updates follow me on Twitter.
