I work a flexible working pattern so may send emails out of 'normal' working hours.  Please be assured that I do not expect a response outside of your own working hours.

Overview

My current research is exploring the ecology of the night time. I also coordinate Professor Kevin Gaston’s research group.

Research

Research interests

I am interested in applying an interdisciplinary approach to broadly focus on the relationship between the natural world and human health. Working on the Seas, Oceans and Public Health in Europe project, I systematically mapped the literature on the benefits and costs for human health of exposure to the marine environment. I have also worked on the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Service Sustainability project where I applied theory based in ecology, the health sciences and social science to quantify the health benefits from ‘doses’ of nature. I am interested in exploring the role of different biological components in providing these benefits, and how they flow around the landscape.

Research topics

  • Ecology of the night time
  • Seas, Oceans and Public health in Europe
  • Birds and mental health
  • Nature and human health
  • Life history of African birds
