Dr Talya Hackett


After completing my BSc in 2006 at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, I worked as a research assistant on various projects around the world. These included grey squirrels in Canada, satin bower birds in Australia and bottle-nosed dolphins in USA.

My PhD research was on Bioacoustics, habitat use and foraging ecology of desert-dwelling insectivorous bats at Bristol University under the supervision of Dr Marc Holderied and collaborating with Prof Carmi Korine at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. Part of this research involved examining the link between acacia trees, the nocturnal arthropods around them and the bats that preyed upon the arthropods.  I was awarded my PhD in 2013 and was keen to expand my experience in food web research on a larger scale.
