Research title: Developing a nested, multiscale framework for modelling animal movement processes from long-term tracking data
My research is focused on developing a nested, multiscale framework for modelling animal movement processes from long-term tracking data.
I am interested in spatial modelling of ecological processes, particularly through spatial point process, multiscale, animal movement, and species distribution modelling.
My PhD research is funded by the UKRI Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
