A nature lover with a keen interest in the ecology of migrants and avian behaviour. A Research Associate with APLORI, a former intern with and current member of Dr Rob Thomas' Behaviour Group at the Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University. SCCS Cambridge Alumnus. Rufford Small Grants Recipient. I also guide the occasional student through data analyses and experimental design.My areas of research interest include Wintering ecology and Migration, Behavioural Ecology and Biostatistics. I have studied/am studying the winter ecology of pied flycatchers to understand the non-breeding determinants of population decline within the species. I am also studying the phenology and life-history strategies of a sexually dimorphic resident avian species.I have participated in projects such as Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBA) monitoring schemes and monitoring of intra-African migrants in varying capacities. Furthermore, I possess a 5-year work experience with abilities and skills in statistical analysis and experimental design, GIS, field ecology, data management and monitoring techniques.
