Matthew Creasey
PhD researcher


I am an ecologist with interests in animal behaviour, evolution and conservation. My current research focusses on individual differences in personality and cognition among individuals within cooperative groups.

I am also involved in science communication. I am a junior editor at the magazine Current Conservation, have written for various other magazines and websites and recently published my first children’s book as part of a series produced in collaboration with other researchers at Exeter University. More information about this project can be found at
