Verity Miles (BSc, MSc) is a PhD student under the NERC DTP Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet.
Her current research is focussed on using camera traps to count badger populations and evaluate the effectiveness of lethal and non-lethal approaches to bovine TB control.
Prior to joining Imperial, Verity completed an MSc at the University of Bristol investigating the abundance of ticks on sheep on upland moor farms in the West Country, and a BSc in Zoology at the University of Bristol looking at the social structure and habitat preferences of roosting Daubenton’s bat (Myotis daubentonii).
Having worked at an environmental campaigning organisation in London for several years, Verity's wider research interests are focussed on conservation, ecology and sustainability. She is particularly interested in mammal and bird ecology, and is a bird ringer with the British Trust for Ornithology.
