I am a quantitative ecologist with a background in marine and environmental biology and statistics. I am interested in the movement ecology of animals - mainly swimming, diving and flying animals. More generally, I like using statistical methods to learn about pattern and process in the ecology and biology of animals.


During my Newton International Fellowship at the University of St Andrews I will be looking at the effects of ocean properties on the movement ecology of Weddell seals under the project title EMEWS. There is a strong methods development and implementation focus for this project, particularly time series models for animal movement.
