I am a seabird ecologist, completing my PhD in Zoology in the Ocean Research and Conservation lab (under Dr. Tom Hart, Dr. Dora Biro, and Professor Alex Rogers) at the University of Oxford.
I specialize in Antarctic and sub-Antarctic ecosystems, methods using camera traps, and seabird monitoring. I was one of the lead scientists in the creation of the citizen-science website Penguin Watch (, which has engaged over 35,000 volunteers in the annotation of over 4 million (and counting) images of nesting penguins throughout the Southern Ocean.

I am currently looking to expand my expertise through a postdoctoral or environmentally-oriented position.
