Research Interests

I am mainly interested in the behavior of top marine predators in the Antarctic, focusing on penguins.

I am going to Antarctica this December to study the foraging behavior of chinstrap penguins using on-board videos cameras, GPS trackers, depth sensors and accelerometers. I am also studying the diving behavior of Manx Shearwaters and worked with them on Skomer Island this summer. I am interested in using machine learning methods to better understand seabird behavior.
