Personal profile

Research expertise

I am a research fellow based at the Environmental Research Institute in Thurso. My current research focuses on the potential impacts of human activities such as renewable energy (wind, wave, and tidal), oil and gas developments and marine litter on the environment, and particularly seabirds. I also have an interest in cumulative impacts related to renewable energy. More generally I am interested in population dynamics and spatial ecology including animal movement as well as ecological modelling.
