I have wide-ranging interests in animal behavior, ecology and evolution. My primary research focus is on foraging behavior and, in particular, the decision-making processes of foraging animals. I have carried out research on the foraging behavior of vultures and cormorants and most recently the breeding biology of grassland birds. I am also interested in the ectoparasites of small mammals.
