Overview

I am interested in the invertebrate diseases and migration. I am currently involved in a project investigating the environmental and genetic basis of migration in the marmalade hoverfly with Dr. Karl Wotton. Here we investigate the spectacular long-distance migrations of insectsto determine how these tiny organisms move over vast distances and the ecological consequences of these movements.Visit our lab website to find out more.

Previous positions held at the University of Exeter have included projects investigating the genetic basis of resistance in the Indian meal moth, taxonomic work exploring the role of invertebrates in crop yield and a project investigating pollinator disease transmission within the agricultral landscape. I come from an ecology background, previously working as an assistant ecologist at WYG group. Visit our lab website to find out more.

  • Fieldwork
  • Molecular biology
