Nicole Parr
PhD Student


I graduated with a BSc in Conservation Biology & Ecology in 2012 from the University of Exeter. Following on from my degree I volunteered for the University of Cambridge and University of Zurich studying the behavior and life history of the Cape Ground Squirrel in the Kalahari Desert.  In 2013 I returned to the University of Exeter where I worked as a research Technician studying co-evolution in a microbial system. I am now a PhD researcher, working in physiological Ecology. 

Broad research specialisms:

I am interested in the amazing migrations some animals are able to undertake.  My research looks into the physiology powering these migrations, especially in challenging environments.  My ultimate aim is to inform on the breadth and type of adaptations that migratory vertebrates can exhibit in response to a strong environmental forcing factor.
