I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield in 2014, studying vocal communication in the chestnut-crowned babbler, a cooperatively breeding bird endemic to south-eastern Australia. Since then I have worked primarily on seabirds, and have been involved in various intensive monitoring and tracking projects. I have been the Ornithological Warden for the Calf of Man Bird Observatory, and a Senior Research Assistant with the RSPB, tracking seabird movements on Fair Isle. I previously worked as a Research Assistant on Skomer Island as part of a long-term population study on guillemots. I am an active bird ringer, and hold a British Trust for Ornithology A-permit and training endorsement.
