James is a Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews’ Sea Mammal Research Unit. His research focuses on understanding how seals and other top marine predators interact with their environment, particularly the effect that human impacts such as climate change are having on foraging behaviour and migration. James uses a combination of tools including bio-logging, stable isotope analysis and quantitative modelling to answer these questions.
