My research at the RSPB has focused on diagnosing the recent population decline of Black-tailed Godwits in the United Kingdom and developing and evaluating conservation solutions to reverse their decline.

I'm currently gathering tracking data on wader species in the East-Atlantic-Flyway to demonstarte the international importance of the Tagus Estuary for waders.
