I am an evolutionary biologist based in Dr. Alastair Wilson‘s group at the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus. My postdoctoral work focuses on the evolutionary genetics of the vertebrate stress response (using the guppy, Poecilia reticulata). I completed my PhD at the University of Stirling in 2014, during which time my research was supervised by Dr. Luc Bussière at the University of Stirling. I used the decorated cricket (Gryllodes sigillatus) to investigate the trade-offs that occur when individuals allocate limited resources to competing life history traits, with a particular focus on male sexual signalling. Please see my research page for more details.

Along with Luc, I teach a 5-day statistics workshop called ‘Advancing in statistical modelling using R‘, currently running every 6 months. Please take a look at my other pages on this website – I am also a photographer, blogger, and a co-host of the ‘Breaking Bio’ podcast.
