Ross works on the penguin research project as a Research Assistant, based on Phillip Island. His job is firstly to ensure all the nuts and bolts (as well as sensors, cables, computers, microwave antennas…) of our field equipment are working reliably, accurately, and efficiently for the researchers to work with. Secondly, since some of our monitoring systems are fully automated, he makes sure that in every way possible our research subjects (in this case, little penguins) interact with those systems in a way that gives us the best data, while minimising any stress or disturbance to the animals.
