Therésa Jones is a Senior Lecturer in Behaviour and Evolutionary Ecology and Leader of the Urban Light Lab in the School of BioSciences.
She is interested in understanding the ecological impact of artificial light at night on the fitness of individual animals and their communities. She addresses this using a variety of species including crickets, spiders, swans, willie wagtails and the eastern grey kangaroo. Research from the Urban Light lab has linked artificial light at night with reductions in immune function, reproductive success and survival. The Urban light lab engages widely with diverse stakeholders regarding their lighting strategies.
