Environmental Sciences

I am a Professor of Applied Ecology with broad teaching and research interests spanning from nesting ecology of birds to ecological impact assessment, mammal conservation and the role of citizen sciences in studying biology and ecology.

Biography

I teach across the undergraduate programmes in Biology and Animal Biology, with a specific focus on ecological surveying, conservation ecology and avian biology. I run the annual UK #StarlingSurvey to record murmurations and am also a highly active researcher. I publish regularly in international peer-reviewed journals, as well as writing popular science articles and disseminating research at conferences, involving undergraduate students in my research work wherever possible.

Teaching and research

Teaching

I focus on practical and conservation ecology, field biology, avian biology and biogeography. My teaching is highly applied and uses lectures, seminars, workshops, fieldwork, lab work and computer analysis to link theory to its practical application.

Level

Undergraduate, Postgraduate

Research

 

My research focuses on applied ecology. This includes the ways in which species interact with their environment, the biotic effects of climatic change, ecological monitoring and conservation ecology. Although I work on many different taxonomic groups, my particular passion is applied ornithology – anything connected with birds has always fascinated me! My research is of an applied nature, having particular relevance to species conservation and habitat management.
