I am interested in the interface between seabird ecology, physiology and behaviour and in particular in understanding energy budgets as these are the key factor underpinning decision making and survival in all organisms. As a result, my work ranges from thermoregulation on land, to diving physiology at sea.
An increasing focus on applied work includes a current project focussing on understanding how seabirds will respond to the presence of offshore renewable energy devices in their foraging areas.
My group work with with study species in South Africa, Australia, the sub-Antarctic, Caribbean and at home in the UK with a focus on a study site on puffin island (www.puffinisland.org.uk).
Please get in touch if you want to know more. I particularly welcome approaches from overseas candidates interested in applying for fellowships to work in the UK through the EU.
