I am an evolutionary biologist based in Prof. 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 Trinidadian guppy, Poecilia reticulata), focusing on individual and genetic (co)variation in behavioural and neuroendocrine traits. I completed my PhD in 2014, supervised by Dr. Luc Bussière at the University of Stirling. I used the decorated cricket (Gryllodes sigillatus) to investigate how individuals allocate limited resources to competing life history traits, with a particular focus on male age-dependent sexual signalling. For more details on my current and previous work, please see my research page.
Alongside 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 former co-host of the ‘Breaking Bio’ podcast.
