Vanessa  Brum-Bastos is a Research Fellow at the School of Geography and Sustainable Development at the University of St Andrews . Currently, she works with Dr Urska Demsar  on the project Uncovering the Mechanisms of Migratory Bird Navigation with Big Data Analytics funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Dr Bastos research focuses on the development and implementation of Context-Aware Movement Analysis (CAMA) to further understand behavior from movement data.

This knowledge is critical for planning equalitarian sustainable transportation systems, as well as designing biodiversity conservation plans.
