Having chosen to return to education as a mature student to study for a degree in Zoology at the University of Exeter's Penryn Campus, I'm now completing a PhD at the university. 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 anthropogenic change struck me as an excellent opportunity to study the ways by which these seabirds appear to thrive in urban environments. My PhD research is co-supervised by Dr Neeltje Boogert and Dr Laura Kelley and aims to understand how herring gulls respond to human behaviour.
