PhD Researcher, Whale-Ship Collisions, University of Portsmouth

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Portsmouth, where I study the threat that maritime vessels pose to large whales through collisions and close-encounters which can alter their behaviours.

General interests include human-induced impacts on marine mammals, cetacean and seal ecology, polar biology, and animal behaviour.
