My research interests include quantitative ecology, population ecology, behavioural ecology and movement ecology, and linking them to applied conservation science.
My research focuses on climate change impacts on species behaviour and population dynamics, with a particular focus to date on the African wild dog. My PhD used long term data to build a mechanistic, individual based population model of African wild dogs under future climate change scenarios. In my current research position I am using accelerometry data to measure energy intake and expenditure in the species, with a view to investigating how temperature impacts energy budgets in the species. I am building an energy budget model for the species building on work I did on the population model of the species during my PhD.
