Dr Nicole Goodey
Biosciences Lecturer


I am a lecturer at the Exeter University (Penryn campus). I am very passionate about teaching, and teach across a broad range of first, second and third year undergraduate modules including: Invertebrate Zoology, Key Skills, Biodiversity and Conservation, Sensory Ecology and Living in Groups, and the South Africa and Yukon fieldcourses. I am especially interested in finding novel and engaging ways to communicate science to university students, and to the wider community.

I am a post graduate mentor, member of the Equality and Diversity Working Group and member of the West Cornwall British Science Association. I have extensive experience acting as a peer coach, mentor and supervisor for undergraduate students. I also develop and implement regular science outreach and communication initiatives, including a popular science radio show.

My research background is in the ecology of species interactions, in particular trait mediated plant-insect interactions. My research interests range from the maintenance of phenotypic variation in natural systems, and the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of closely linked species.

Research interests:

  • Plant ecology
  • Phenotypic diversity in natural populations
  • Ecological and evolutionary dynamics of species interactions
  • Entomology
