Senior Lecturer in Marine Vertebrate Ecology, University of Exeter

I also hold an honorary appointment as a Research Fellow in the Department of Biodiversity and Conservation Biology at the University of the Western Cape, and am a member of the Exeter Marine and Conscience research hubs.

My research focuses on the demography, movement ecology, and conservation of marine vertebrates, particularly how they interact with human activities in, and influences on, the oceans.

My work is funded by a number of research councils, governments institutes, charitable trusts and philanthropic donations, notably of late the The Pew Charitable Trusts through their Pew Fellows Program in  Marine Conservation and the Bertarelli Foundation through their Marine Science programme.
