Philip joined BSG Ecology in March 2019 having completed his PhD at Imperial College London, which examined mechanistic responses of mammals to logging in South East Asian tropical forests. He gained extensive experience of live trapping small mammals, mark-recapture techniques and camera trap surveys, as well as survey planning, leading volunteer field teams and conducting analyses.
Philip has also volunteered extensively as a bird surveyor in the UK with the BTO. He is a keen bird ringer and gained his C permit during 2018. Philip has experience of monitoring several species at the nest for his BA dissertation, and monitoring barn owl (a Schedule 1 protected bird).
Philip also has experience of invertebrate and vegetation surveys and habitat mapping through his academic work.
