Biography

Research Interests

My main research interest is in the field of mammal ecology.  I have worked on a number of squirrel ecology projects, with particular reference to their distribution, red and grey squirrel competition, red squirrel conservation and the management of grey squirrel populations.  My research group has also investigated the use of translocation as a conservation tool for red squirrels, and the interactions between both squirrel species and pine martens. 

The ecology of small mammal populations, the control of pest species, the ecology of invasive species, mammal monitoring techniques and their applications and mammal parasitology are other areas of interest.  Other
projects in my research group, the Animal Ecology and Conservation Unit, include an investigation of the tardigrade (or ‘water bear’) fauna of Ireland, frog ecology in coniferous forests and fish passage at hydroelectric power stations.
