- Annie Aulsebrook
PhD Candidate, School of BioSciences, University of Melbourne
Anne Aulsebrook's research, supervised by Professor Raoul Mulder, Dr Therésa Jones (University of Melbourne) and Dr John Lesku (LaTrobe University), is currently exploring how artificial light at night affects urban birds. She is particularly interested in how streetlights affect circadian (day-night) rhythms, including sleep. In 2016, Anne was awarded Runner Up in the University of Melbourne Three Minute Thesis Competition.
Annie and the swans (not a band)
A bioscience PhD candidate discusses studying urban birds and light pollution and how she tracks the movements and behaviours of swans and pigeons.
How are birds faring in our cities?
We chat with two PhD researchers about their work on the impact of city lights on birds, and learning from our digestive systems to build better detergents.
What animals can tell us about sleeping
To learn more about why we sleep, new research suggests we look to the animal world and how bees and birds (and others) do it in their natural environment.
