My research group (SHOALgroup) uses a question-oriented approach to address a range of issues in animal behaviour and ecology, and we have strong applied themes.
An over-arching aim of our research is to understand how costs and benefits shape individual behaviour, and how these behaviours relate to the structure and functioning of groups and populations. To achieve this, we conduct research on a variety of group-living animals (including humans) in the wild and in the lab, and use novel technologies and analytical tools to access information about interactions at many spatio-temporal scales. You can learn more about our research, public engagement and media work at our website.
