Our group's research focuses on behavioural and ecological aspects of animal navigation and spatial cognition, using a number of different species and a variety of state-of-the-art sensor technologies. We study the contribution of individual cognitive capabilities and navigational strategies, and of the ecological, sensory, and social environments to animal movement.
We are based at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, and are part of the Animal Behaviour Research Group. Please use the tabs at the top to navigate the website and to find out more about our research, members, publications and funding.
