My work at SEGUL focusses on the fine-scale behaviour of three albatross species, specifically looking at the behaviours that accompany prey capture. The goal is to find behaviours that are typical of successful prey capture attempts, using time series analyses of movement metrics. Another aspect of this project will be to look at the proximate environmental conditions that make finding prey easier or harder for these birds, and how these may change over time.

Before joining SEGUL, I completed my PhD in University College Cork, using biologging techniques to identify fine-scale behaviours of three seabird species, Manx shearwaters, Atlantic puffins, and northern fulmars. The chapters of this PhD all used multiple biologging and environmental data streams in combination to answer questions about how seabirds respond to their environment, and how this might shape their distribution.
