I am a Senior Research Fellow at the University of St. Andrews. I have worked in the NERC Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU) for over 25 years during which time I have published on the movement and behaviour of marine mammals – from the Antarctic to the Arctic. I co-manage the Instrumentation Group within the SMRU that has developed a novel set of telemetry systems to study the biology of marine mammals at sea. This group is internationally acknowledged as a world leader in the development of novel telemetry system for marine mammals and has an annual turnaround of c. £0.6M.

 

I have been the recipient of numerous awards from public agencies, the telecommunications industry and Research Councils.  My other academic interests include networks and the application of wireless sensor networks in ecology and population biology
