I am a PhD student at the British Antarctic Survey and University of Cambridge. My PhD, ‘Living on the ice edge: environmental and anthropogenic factors influencing distribution and demography of Antarctic seabirds’, aims to examine the distribution, diet, ecology, demography and potential threats to the globally important populations of south polar skuas and Antarctic shags breeding near the British Antarctic Survey research station at Rothera Point (Adelaide Island) and nearby islands in Ryder Bay, Antarctic Peninsula.

The projects outputs will contribute to our understanding of the structure of ice-edge food webs, and the impacts of variability and change, particularly annual changes in sea-ice extent and timing. The project will be a key part of the risk assessment for the BAS Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme (AIMP).
