Scottish Natural Heritage, United Kingdom

I work as a Marine Ornithologist for Scottish Natural Heritage, providing advice to government, regulators and industry on the impacts of offshore renewables on Scottish seabirds.

My PhD research focused on the ecological impacts of wave and tidal marine renewable installations on marine birds. I used behavioural ecology approaches to investigate how marine birds use high-energy tidal environments and improve our understanding of bird survey requirements to help develop methods for environmental impact assessment.
