I am a PhD student and my research is centred on understanding the demographic drivers of population decline in the Greenland White-fronted Goose. This work is carried out in Stuart Bearhop's research group and in partnership with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.
I am exploring potential drivers of decline right across the global range of the Greenland White-fronted Goose. My research focusses on the following areas:
- The effects of a changing arctic climate on breeding success in Greenland
- The impacts of hunting on adult survival on the Icelandic staging grounds
- How changes to weather regimes in the North Atlantic might impact migratory energetics and survival
- The extent of anthropogenic disturbance on the British wintering grounds and its effects on movement and behavioural patterns
To understand the magnitude of these effects I am utilising biologging technology, remote sensing data, in field observations and individual marking.

BSc Natural Sciences, University of Durham
More broadly I am interested in:
- How demographic processes drive declines in migratory populations
- Carry over effects or reversible state effects in migrants
- Consequences, costs and benefits of range shifts in migrants
- Applications of biologging technology
