Broadly, I am interested in animal social behaviour and how the costs and benefits of this vary between social group members. I am particularly interested in how social individuals' behaviour is influenced by changes in the environment, how these individual behaviours scale up to affect group and population level patterns, and how this information can inform the conservation and management of social species.
