Having worked in the environmental NGO sector for the last 20 years, I am interested in the interface between science and policy. Particular focus is examining population-level effects of individual behaviour, social interactions and knowledge transmission in vertebrates.
Broad research specialisms:
Examining the implications of culture and other forms of social complexity for conservation management of mammals, including investigating the potential role of individuals that act as repositories of social knowledge. Investigating the importance of maintaining phenotypic as well as genotypic diversity for conservation, with an emphasis on cetaceans.
