Resumo da atividade

My research focuses on marine animal ecology and conservation, particularly the study of the foraging strategies and ecological roles of seabirds and other apex predators, of wider trophic relationships in marine communities. I gained diverse field and analytical expertise on biologging, ecosystem modelling and advanced statistics. I partition my time between scientific publishing (90 ISI papers), lecturing (Biological Conservation) and supervising students (12 PhD and 46 MSc).
