Key Research Interests and Expertise

My research interests are in understanding the demographic and environmental processes influencing the population dynamics of bird populations. My primary research project uses national-level, long-term citizen science datasets to assess drivers of population decline and identify conservation priorities in Europe’s Afro-Palaearctic migratory bird populations. Through this work I have developed close collaborations with scientists working on complementary projects at the BTO and RSPB. Together we aim to provide the evidence needed to correctly target conservation efforts and halt and reverse the declines in Afro-Palaearctic migrant species across their European breeding grounds.

Professional Activities

I am an Associate Editor for the international journal Ibis.

I hold a UK C permit bird ringing licence having ringed over 1000 birds ranging from passerines, raptors, waders and seabirds.
