Research Interests

I am deeply interested in the behavioural responses of animals to human-induced rapid environmental change. As an undergraduate, I conducted my thesis research on the response of roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) habitat selection to shifting snowlines and artificial food availability in the Italian Alps.

Now, at Oxford, I am researching individual energy-use variability in the European badger (Meles meles) to climate change. These individual strategies are what provide populations with the key to success in a human-dominated world, and understanding which lead to success and which to failure will enable us to better tailor conservation strategies to modern challenges.
