My research seeks to understand the contributions of dispersal to the dynamics of populations, how the outcome of trophic interactions is modified by dispersal and to optimise the use of concepts from population ecology to solve pressing applied issues in wildlife management and conservation.

I achieve these aims by conducting large-scale and often long-term field studies with birds and mammals as well as by linking theoretical insights with empirical findings using statistical techniques.
