I am a MASTS Research Fellow at CREEM, University of St Andrews. I work at the intersection of ecology, statistics, and information visualisation. Much of my work is on animal movement, and recently I have focused on the interplay between body condition and movement in marine organisms. The goal of most of this work is to understand the times and places when animals may be more or less vulnerable to human disturbance. I also maintain an active interest in ecological connectivity. In addition, I have started a new project funded by a SULSA LEADERS award to look at movement patterns and smoking behaviours in humans.
