Dr Kelly Robinson
Research Fellow


 

Current Position:

I am a research fellow at the Sea Mammal Research Unit under Dr Ailsa Hall working on a joint NERC research grant held by Dr Kimberley Bennett at the University of Abertay working on the affects of hormones and persistent organic pollutants on fat tissue function in phocid seals.

Research Interests include:

  • Hormonal impacts on individual behaviour and physiology
  • Maternal and social behaviour
  • Particular interest in the neuropeptide oxytocin, which I conducted my PhD on under Dr Paddy Pomeroy and Dr Neil Hazon at the Scottish Oceans Institute, St Andrews and Dr Sean Twiss at the University of Durham
