Madeleine is a Research Ecologist in the Terrestrial Ecology team, exploring the responses of birds to air pollution and agri-environment schemes.
Since joining the BTO in 2021, Maddie has worked on a range of projects using citizen-science data to assess the impacts of human activities on terrestrial birds.
Interests & Responsibilities
2013 PhD, Predicting responses to climate change: Eco-physiology of the Common Brown Butterfly, Heteronympha merope, The University of Melbourne
2006 BSc (Hons) Genetics, The University of Melbourne
