I am a physiological ecologist. My research focuses on the costs and drivers of migratory strategies in vertebrates using techniques such as satellite telemetry and physiological measurements, including respirometry. My work has also focused on the impact of external forcing factors, such as climate change and disease ecology, on migration and breeding ecology. I studied marine turtles for my PhD, the fantastic bar-headed goose for my post doc, and along the way I have been working with basking sharks and blue sharks, song birds, grey seals, flour beetles and garden snails. My future research will make inroads into mega-vertebrate migratory physiology using emerging technologies and multi-technique approaches like heart rate logging and accelerometry.
