Personal profile

Research overview

I am a statistical ecologist with a background in marine and environmental biology and statistics. I use statistical methods to learn about pattern and process in the ecology and biology of animals. I am particularly interested in the movement ecology of animals, mainly large flying, swimming and diving animals, and the application and development of quantitative methods for analysing the data we collect on movement.
