Mr Connor Bamford is a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

I completed my MPhil in Polar Studies at the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge in 2015, where my dissertation research investigated the spatial distribution of baleen whales in Eastern Antarctica. Preceding this, I graduated from the University of Southampton with a BSc (Hons.) degree in Environmental Sciences in 2014.

Research interests

My PhD is hosted at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge where I will be applying contemporary satellite tagging data to investigate the spatial and temporal distribution of higher predator species in the waters surrounding the South Georgia. In particular, my research interest focusses on identifying regions of ecological significance to predator species. Initially this includes humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae), southern right whales (Eubalaena australis) and Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella).

Research project: Patterns of marine habitat use by higher predators in the South Atlantic
