Dr Hanna Nuuttila
Research assistant, SEACAMS2
Marine biologist with over 10 years experience of coastal, boat-based and diving marine and coastal survey, seagrass ecology, benthic and fish ID, acoustic monitoring of cetaceans, BRUV. Currently studying a part-time PhD looking at environmental drivers of change in seagrass meadows.
Specialist subjects and interests:
Bird survey and handling from raptors to passerines; movement ecology and behaviour of birds in relation to conservation efforts; seabird movements and distributions in areas of high tidal activity. I am concerned with how diving birds in particular utilise specific features of these dynamic waters and to investigate any potential interactions that may occur with marine renewable energy devices.
