I’m interested in the evolutionary mechanisms and ecological implications of individual variation in wild populations, and the application of behavioral ecology to conservation and wildlife management.
Broad research specialisms:
- Behavioural & Evolutionary Ecology
- Urban Mammals
- Animal Personality

Project Title: Personality variation in the eastern grey squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) across an urbanisation gradient.
I’m using natural populations of grey squirrels as a system in which explore the ecological factors driving consistent individual behavioural variation (animal personality). In particular, I’m interested in the relationship between personality and responses to urbanisation.
