I am currently a research assistant working in Professor Bass’ lab group. I am part of an ERC-funded project team which aims to further understand the molecular and genetic mechanisms underpinning the evolution of insecticide resistance in important pest insects such as the peach potato aphid Myzus persicae. Particularly interesting is the role of epigenetics in the evolution of resistant insect populations, something which is relatively poorly understood. In my previous role as a research assistant at Rothamsted Research, I worked on a project which focused on understanding the molecular and genetic basis explaining differential toxicity of various common insecticidal compounds to two bee species, the buff-tailed bumblebee and the solitary red mason bee.
