Dr Holly Kirk

Holly is an ecologist who is fascinated by how animals move around their environment, from foraging fairy-wrens to migrating monarch butterflies.

She is currently working in the ICON Science group investigating movement ecology in urban birds as part of an Endeavour post-doctoral fellowship.

Before joining RMIT University, Holly completed her PhD studying migration and behavioural ecology in UK seabirds. Here she developed a keen interest in using miniaturised technology to eves-drop on secretive animal species.

You can find out more about Holly’s research on her web page, or by following her on Twitter @HollyKirk.
