Overview

I'm a mature student who chose to end a working life clearing invoices to study for a degree in Zoology at the University of Exeter's Cornwall campus. My undergraduate research project investigated the relationship between egg traits and fledging success in a local population of jackdaws and was supervised by Dr Alex Thornton. Since moving to Cornwall, I got to know some of its less popular residents: I spent the duration of my undergraduate degree living alongside a large colony of herring gulls. Having had a long-standing interest in animal behaviour and cognition, their lingering presence in the face of anthopogenic change struck me as an excellent opportunity to study the ways by which these seabirds thrive in urban environments. My Masters research is co-supervised by Dr Neeltje Boogert and Dr Laura Kelley and aims to test the responses of herring gulls to human behavioural cues.
