- Impact of anthropogenic noise on marine mammals and the development of methods for modelling the distribution of marine mammals across space for risk mitigation purposes, for quantitatively assessing cumulative risk associated with noise exposure, and for analysing behavioural responses to sound.
- Landscape, population and spatial ecology within the disciplines of marine mammal ecology, invasive species ecology and epidemiology.
- Development of spatially-explicit models for the prediction of spread of invasive species and diseases.
