Research Interests

As of 1st May I have started a post-doc with Allert Bijleveld working on the movement ecology of red knots using the WATLAS system. My interests are quite broad, but I am particularly interested in how individual differences influence movement and foraging behaviour.

I have recently finished my PhD which I did with Joah Madden at the University of Exeter, where I worked to understand how individual differences in spatial cognition influenced different aspects of movement ecology. My study species was the pheasant and after testing juveniles on various cognitive tests, I tracked their movements in the wild, first with RFID but later with an ATLAS system, similar to the one at NIOZ.
