I am interested in the interactions between people and the environment, in particular how anthropogenic influences alter ecosystems and species behaviours. I started my PhD in 2011 and I am funded by a Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship (KESS). My current research looks to examine the influence of artificial light at night in freshwater ecosystems.
Project title: Artificial night light as a barrier to migration and movement of high value fish and fisheries
