Research Overview

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.
