My research interests surround habitat management, monitoring and restoration underpinned by understanding biodiversity, habitat use, and species interactions at different life stages. The main themes I am interested in are:
- Establishing robust biodiversity baselines and techniques to assess the impacts of restoration efforts and monitor for future changes
- Understanding the impacts of anthropogenic stressors on species and ecosystem levels with an aim to inform policy and industrial practices
- Investigating habitat restoration and restorative aquaculture techniques with a focus in the North Sea
I am keen to incorporate additional methods to provide a more in-depth view of these themes, such as molecular techniques and neuroecological principles.
In addition, I have a strong interest in taxonomy and animal ethics, with further experience in animal husbandry and enrichment.
- Artificial habitat design and in-depth behavioural analyses of the European lobster, Homarus gammarus
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as a potential tool to assess and monitor herring spawning events
- Impacts of electromagnetic fields from subsea cables on the post-disturbance recovery of marine coastal invertebrates
- Impacts of electromagnetic fields from subsea cables on the embryological development of the long-finned squid, Loligo forbesii
