I work mainly on the foraging ecology of marine top predators.
I’ve held postdoctoral positions at the CNRS (France), Sorbonne University (France) and Nelson Mandela University (South Africa).
I completed my MSc and PhD — both dealing with the ecology of killer whales at sub-Antarctic Marion Island — at the University of Pretoria’s Mammal Research Institute, under the supervision of Prof. P.J. Nico de Bruyn, Prof. A. Rus Hoelzel and Dr. Mark Keith.
I’m currently working on the movement behaviour of Antarctic humpback whales with Dr. Ari Friedlaender, and on a project called the ‘Retrospective Analysis of Antarctic Tracking Data’, a multinational effort to identify ecologically important areas in the Southern Ocean using marine apex predator tracking data.
