domain of specialization
My research focuses on marine animal ecology, particularly the study of the foraging strategies and ecological roles of seabirds and other apex predators, of wider trophic relationships in marine communities and of migration strategies of birds.
 
present investigation interests
I'm interested in understanding how these apex predators respond to global change. I’ve already made significant contributions to this field through a broad suite of peer-reviewed publications, and in building and maintaining a wide network of national and international collaborators. I gained diverse field and analytical expertise which allows me to apply powerful techniques such as stable isotope analysis, biologging, ecophysiological analysis, ecosystem modelling and advanced statistical procedures to address a wide range of key and highly topical ecological issues.
