Dr Alexandra Loveridge


I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant within the Sims Lab, part of the marine sub-project of the COVID-19 Bio-logging Initiative, a global project funded by the Moore Foundation. My research interests lie in movement ecology within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am currently investigating whether the distribution and behaviour of marine animals have been affected by changes in global human activity and maritime traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I completed my PhD in cnidarian population dynamics from the University of Southampton in 2021, alongside which I volunteered as a data analyst with WorldPop at the University of Southampton, providing policymakers with weekly analyses and visualisations of UK and international population mobility across the COVID-19 pandemic
