I completed an MSc in Animal Welfare Science at the University of Glasgow in 2016. Since then, I have undertaken a Living Seas traineeship with the UWT and have participated in IWDG ferry surveys between Belfast and Cairnryan. I am an accredited JNCC Marine Mammal Observer and PAM operator. My research interests focus on the relationship between anthropogenic noise pollution and cetacean strandings.
My main goal this year is to create a stronger network of land-based monitoring in Northern Ireland, as well as creating new ways to engage our members.
