Institution or affiliation:
I am a Research Fellow at Lancaster University, UK, and although I have broad interests, much of my research focuses on the design and functions of birds' nests, the social behaviours that occur within avian families and the conservation of endangered birds. These studies have primarily involved blue tits and zebra finches, although I have also studied critically endangered raso larks and sociable weavers. I contribute to the wider scientific community by being an Editorial board member for Scientific Reports (2013-present), a member of the British Ecological Society's 'Review College' (2012-present), a member of the British Ecological Society's 'Books Task & Finish Group' (2016-present) and a Review Editor for Elsevier's forthcoming Encyclopedia of Animal Behaviour (2016-2019). I am also a keen birdwatcher and try to spend as much time as possible with a pair of binoculars.
