My research focuses on both fundamental and applied aspects of ecology, including foraging behaviour, habitat use and human-wildlife spatial conflict. My work involves survey and tracking methodologies to gather information on animal movements, habitat requirements, ecophysiology and community structure. This has included the impact of habitat disturbance on shorebird and seabird populations in the UK; also patterns of habitat use in crocodiles, freshwater turtles, southern cassowaries and eastern grey kangaroos in Queensland, Australia. In order to facilitate researchers in the analysis of animal tracking data, I have developed two open-source packages in R: ‘VTrack’ and ‘Digiroo’. I am a member of Prof Craig Franklin's ECO-Lab.
