I am a research scientist with broad interests in ecology, behaviour, and conservation. I use my research to identify current and emerging threats to waterbird populations and inform their conservation and management. I am also interested in using my research to help inform the management of conservation conflicts related to waterbirds. My research combines field ecology, meta-analysis, statistical analyses, and simulation modelling techniques such as individual-based modelling.
My research career started as a NERC-funded MSc student at Queen Mary, University of London. There I worked with Professor Jon Grey and the Environment Agency to investigate the effects of invasive crayfish on native fish in UK rivers. Continuing my interest in rivers, I completed a NERC-funded PhD on Mute Swan foraging ecology, supervised by Dr Matthew O’Hare (Centre for Ecology & Hydrology). I then spent over two years as a postdoctoral research assistant in Professor Richard Stillman’s Individual-based Ecology group at Bournemouth University, developing individual-based models to inform the conservation of waterbird populations and their habitats. I joined the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust in 2014 to investigate the causes of population decline in the Bewick's Swan.
