I am primarily interested in seabird ecology and conservation and the use of novel technologies to improve understanding of the factors affecting threatened species. I am also interested in the power of citizen science to help answer important scientific questions. Currently, my research uses time-lapse imagery to investigate variables influencing Black-legged Kittiwake ecology and demography, including phenology and breeding success, across large spatial and temporal scales. This is possible due to the palearctic camera network developed by the citizen science project, Seabird Watch (https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/penguintom79/seabirdwatch).
