I'm a Biologist specialising in the ecology, physiology and conservation of tuna and sharks.
My research interests include understanding how physiology affects the behaviour of vulnerable species and how they respond and cope to pressures such as climate change and fisheries interactions.
In short, I like to try and understand how an animal 'works' and why it does what it does to effectively offer conservation solutions!
I'm a PhD student at Trinity College Dublin and funded by the Irish Research Council. I'm supervised by Dr Nicholas Payne and Co-Supervised by Dr Andrew Jackson and Dr Jonathan Houghton.
