Activity summary

I'm interested in understanding how these apex predators respond to global change. I’ve already made significant contributions to this field through a broad suite of peer-reviewed publications, and in building and maintaining a wide network of national and international collaborators. I gained diverse field and analytical expertise which allows me to apply powerful techniques such as stable isotope analysis, biologging, ecophysiological analysis, ecosystem modelling and advanced statistics
