While I have a keen interest in the whole of the natural world, my primary research focus and interest lies in birds. I am an avid birdwatcher and have birded in Costa Rica, Mexico and Kenya as well as extensively in the UK. In my literature review in third year I focussed on mutualism and parasitism in the two species of oxpeckers. For my MBiol project I am investigating the effect of territoriality on range expansion in birds using continental scale databases from North America and Europe.
