Claire moved to Dorset and began lecturing at KMC after finishing an MPhil in population ecology. Having always loved animals, she knew from a young age that she would end up working with them in some form or another. Her knowledge and research is particularly focused on mammals, and when not lecturing, Claire enjoys being out in the field doing hands on research.
