I am interested in understanding the demographic and environmental processes influencing bird population dynamics. My current research project uses long-term demographic datasets collected by citizen scientists in order to understand the processes currently driving the sustained and severe declines in Europe’s Afro-Palaearctic migratory bird populations.

Through this work I have developed close collaborations with scientists working on complementary projects at the BTO and RSPB. Together we aim to provide the evidence needed to correctly target conservation efforts and halt and reverse the declines in Afro-Palaearctic migrant species across their European breeding grounds.
