I am an ecologist interested in how species respond to environmental change. Butterflies are a particular passion of mine, with their ecology and conservation forming the focus of much of my research. For my PhD, I am investigating the effects of habitat quality and microclimate on threatened butterfly populations here in Cornwall, aiming to identify how these factors influence species' persistence within landscapes. This research is funded by the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, Cornwall Butterfly and Moth Society and Spalding Associates (Environmental) Ltd.
