Emma initated the project in 2007 as part of her PhD at the University of Bristol. She completed her PhD in March 2011 and received a Nerc Project Grant to continue the project until 2016. Emma and Professors S. Harris and G. Jones will lead the project which aims to build on previous research and assess the impact of lighting on spatial and emergence behaviour of bats, and assess the impact of new technologies on insects (PhD project, see Andy Wakefield below). Emma's focus is applied conservation biology. Emma has worked in conservation research for over 13 years with an emphasis on human-wildlife conflict.
