Research interest

My PhD thesis focuses on the visual perception of wind turbines by birds. This work is part of the MAPE programme, which aims to reduce avian mortality in operating wind farms (
The aim of my work is to gain a better understanding of how birds see wind turbines, in order to improve the detection of wind turbines by birds, and reduce avian collisions.
