Biography

I am an ecologist currently working as a Post-doc with the Forest Ecology Research Group at University College Cork. The project involves investigating the risks posed by afforestation to vulnerable habitats and bird species in Ireland and aims to inform strategic planning of forest expansion in Ireland.

I received my PhD from Victoria University of Wellington in NZ in 2012. I then worked as a lecturer for two years in the Conservation and Environmental Department at NorthTec, Whangarei, NZ. I taught on and was the course coordinator for NZ Conservation (Certificate Level), Freshwater Ecology, Conservation Management, Biological Censusing Techniques (Diploma Level), Behavioural Ecology, and Environmental Risk Management (Degree in Biodiversity Management).
