Overview

I am a NERC iCASE PhD student investigating the mechanisms of ageing in European badgers. I work with the Animal & Plant Heath Agency (APHA) on a remarkable long-term field study which allows me to investigate the causes and consequences of ageing and senescence. Currently I am studying parental age effects on offspring performance, and am also interested in endocrine-immune interactions, immunosenescence and cellular senescence. My primary supervisor is Dr Andy Young
