Emily is a Project Scientist for SMRU Consulting Europe. Since graduating from both the University of St Andrews and Aberdeen, Emily has worked as a research assistant at the Sea Mammal Research Unit. This work mainly focused on two projects, one monitoring long-term population abundance and dynamics of the east coast of Scotland population of bottlenose dolphins, and the other using photo-ID as a method to investigate the regional decline of harbour seals in Scotland. Emily is now transitioning from her role at SMRU into a full time position at SMRU Consulting and is looking forward to using her previous marine mammal science experience to inform her work in consultancy. Outside of work, Emily is crew on the Anstruther Inshore and All-Weather RNLI Lifeboats.
