Fiona Coyle (MSc Student 2019)Fiona Coyle

A year after graduating her undergraduate degree in Zoology from the University of Aberdeen, with her undergraduate thesis focussing on cetacean diets, Fiona started her MSc in Applied Marine and Fisheries Ecology at the University.

Fiona’s project focussed on investigating whether there is geographical variation in the size structure of bottlenose dolphin on the east coast of Scotland. For this project Fiona followed her passion for cetacean research, using data from photo-ID surveys, collected from the Field Station and the University of St Andrews' Sea Mammal Research Unit.
