Dr Tomas Cornwell

Teaching & Research Associate (TARA) (Marine Biology)

School of Biological and Marine Sciences (Faculty of Science and Engineering)

I am a behavioural ecologist with a keen interest in exploring how organisms respond to environmental change. My research to date has focused on behavioural plasticity across environmental gradients and the ecological and evolutionary consequences of individual behavioural variation.
