I am an evolutionary biologist based in Dr. Alastair Wilson‘s group at the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus, where my postdoctoral work focuses on the evolutionary genetics of the vertebrate stress response (using the guppy, Poecilia reticulata). My PhD research was supervised by Dr. Luc Bussière at the University of Stirling and was completed in 2014. 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 R‘, taking place every 6 months at the SCENE field station in Loch Lomond, Scotland. 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.
