Personal profile

Research interests

I am a quantitative ecologist specialising in marine population and ecosystem health. My research spans a wide range of topics relevant to environmental change. I am principally interested in population processes related to animal distributions, movements and connectivity. Exploring marine spatial and population processes allows me to understand how human activities influence environmental change and the effects these perturbations have on ecosystem health and services.
