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.
