My research interests revolve around assessing applied environmental questions with a range of ecological techniques. I am interested in looking at wildlife management problems from a variety of perspectives including considering wider policy, resource management and health dimensions. I am also interested in volunteer engagement with ecological science, validating and using data from citizen science schemes to learn more about wildlife populations and habitat use. I have used large-scale volunteer collected datsets, stable isotope techniques, remote sensing data and tracking techniques to look at habitat use and population management.
I am currently working on a project assessing the movement, habitat use and diets of domesticated, free-ranging dogs in Central and East Africa as part of an initiative to understand how dogs spread Guinea Worm, a Neglected Tropical Disease. This project informs the Guinea Worm Eradication Programme and works in Partnership with The Carter Centre and the World Health Organisation.
I previously conducted my PhD in the ESI with Robbie McDonald, David Hodgson and Sallie Bailey (Forestry Commission) in the ecology and conservation of Hazel Dormice in woodlands. This was conducted in collaboration with Forestry Commission, NERC and People's Trust for Endanged Species.
