The research I am involved in seeks to understand seabird foraging ecology and identify the processes responsible for habitat selection, particularly through the use of tracking technologies and at-sea surveys. As a geographer, my goal is to apply these data spatially in order to better inform conservation and management decisions in the context of marine spatial planning.
