Dr Tanya Pennell
Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Profile

I’m embarking on an exciting new research project with Prof. Jeremy Field, combining my long-term interest in intralocus sexual conflict with a similar conflict that we think exists between social insect castes.  After completing my undergraduate degree here on the Cornwall campus, I moved to the University of Sussex to do my PhD in the interim, but it’s great to be here again with a different agenda.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Sexual conflict (intralocus and interlocus)
  • Drosophila
  • Quantitative genetics
  • Social insects
  • Caste conflict
  • Evolution of fitness and behavioural traits

Qualifications

2011-2016: PhD (Evolutionary Dynamics of Intralocus Sexual Conflict)
2008-2011: BSc (Hons) Conservation Biology and Ecology
