Dr Lucy Hawkes
Lecturer in Physiological Ecology


I am a physiological ecologist, whose work focuses on the costs and drivers of migration in vertebrates using emergent technologists such as satellite telemetry, heart rate logging, accelerometry and metabolic rate measurements. I use technical approaches including spatial ecology, remote sensing and respirometry to make empirical measurements that help in the understanding of amazing migratory performances. My work has also investigated the impact of external forcing factors, such as climate change and disease ecology on migration and breeding ecology. I am also a member of the Marine Turtle Research group.
