General Information



I'm a postdoc working with Dr Patrick Miller (SMRU). My scientific interests within marine mammal science involve underwater acoustics, sound perception, behavioural and physiological responses to man-made noise, movement ecology, and risk mitigation for noise exposure to marine mammals.
