I am a behavioural ecologist fascinated by the varied responses of wildlife to changing environments. My current key research interests are life-history, global change, and hibernation. I am particularly interested in indirect effects of climate on organisms, such as through effects of climate on food availability.
My PhD research focused on the effects of climate on life-history in a declining hibernator, the hazel dormouse, and at other points in my career I have studied mammalian behavioural responses to urbanization and long-term effects of early-life environments in invertebrates.
I currently co-ordinate two courses for MSc Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law, normally co-ordinated by Dr. Davina Hill
- BIOL5116 Animal Welfare Assessment
- BIOL5127 Animal Legislation and Societal Issues
