I manage a small technical team (Andrew Asque, Colin Gooch) who provide an in-house design and production facility of bespoke electronic research equipment.
My work involves the design and development of electronic devices to provide solutions to our many research questions. Much of my work has been around remote monitoring equipment.
Many of my early projects utilised remote cameras to identify nest predators of a whole suite of avian species. More recently we have been built automatic sound recorders and attraction systems.
Current areas of work are enhancing our unmanned aerial vehicle to increase its monitoring potential and ongoing tag development, particularly using mobile and satellite phone networks.
