Miss Sarah Bond
I studied biology at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2013. I then worked as a research assistant for OxNav research group on Skomer Island, using Manx shearwaters to study behavioural questions relating to navigation and the coordination of breeding. More recently I completed my MSc at the University of Exeter, where I studied pre-breeding behaviour in Balearic shearwaters by using salt-water immersion data to identify sex differences in colony visitation.

My PhD research aims to examine consistency in individual foraging strategies in the Northern fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis), throughout the annual cycle. I plan to use a combination of demographic data, geolocator data and accelerometry data in order to assess the energetic costs of foraging at different timescales and under different environmental conditions. I will then look for links with demographic rates, in order to understand the population level consequences of individual consistency.
