I have recently completed my Masters degree in Biodiversity and Conservation at the University of Leeds and prior to that I studied Psychology.

I am particularly interested in seabird behaviour and ecology and have undertaken two research projects in the field. One investigated the effects of bird calls on Herring Gull behaviour and the other explored the impact of foraging behaviour on breeding success in adult Northern Gannets.

I am due to start my PhD at St Andrews University in September and this research will focus on the ecology, behaviour and physiology of urban gulls.. so I am very excited to start!
