Dr Matthew Witt
Senior Lecturer in Natural Environment


My research focuses on marine ecology, looking specifically at the distribution and behaviour of turtles, sharks and other mobile marine species. Acquiring this knowledge is often challenging so my work uses a wide range of technologies, including satellite tracking and acoustic detection. I am especially interested in using large sets of data to assess the effects of human activities on marine ecosystems.

I am a member of the Environment and Sustainability Institute.
