My research interests lie in understanding the foraging strategies of predators, and how they hunt over time, across space, and in groups. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall Campus, where I work with Richard Sherley on a project investigating the impacts of fishing activity on African penguins. By identifying foraging events in high-resolution biologging data (including TDR, accelerometery and animal-borne video), I try and find ways of predicting foraging success in larger historical tracking datasets, to ultimately understand how fishing affects the energetic landscape of foraging penguins. This work is funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts and the University of Exeter.
