I'm a PhD student supervised by Dr Patrick Miller. My scientific interests within marine mammal science mainly involve underwater acoustics, vocal behaviour, sound perception and other aspects of hearing, behavioural and physiological responses to man-made noise, movement ecology, and risk mitigation for noise exposure to marine mammals.
