Dr. Lucy Hawkes
Thirty-four Years of Tracking Sea Turtles: What We Now Know and How We Can Use it in Conservation
May 18, 2016 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Dr. Lucy Hawkes is a physiological ecologist, whose work focuses on the costs and drivers of migration in vertebrates using emergent technologists such as satellite telemetry, heart rate logging, accelerometry, and metabolic rate measurements. She uses technical approaches including spatial ecology, remote sensing and respirometry to make empirical measurements that help in the understanding of extensive migratory performances. Her work has also researched the impact of external forcing factors, such as climate change and disease ecology on migration and breeding. She is also a member of the Marine Turtle Research group.
