Currently employed as FSC BioLinks Project Officer for London, I am coordinating invertebrate-focused place-based volunteer training and delivering a range of recording project activities across London. I am also developing and delivering online training courses and content focusing on invertebrate taxonomy, field ID and ecology through a virtual learning platform. You can find out more about the project here.

University College London and Institute of Zoology PhD student with the London NERC DTP. Previously ant genomics and evolution Research Assistant at Queen Mary University of London. With a keen interest in ecology and entomology, I have volunteered with the Lepidoptera department and Soil Biodiversity Group at the Natural History Museum, and on the Thorn to Orchid and Water for Wildlife projects with London Wildlife Trust.

My research interests include:
  • The use of model organisms as indicators of ecosystem health
  • Evolution and adaptation in response to habitat and climate change
  • Predation, parasitism, trophic cascades and food webs
  • Mimicry, camouflage and crypsis
  • Taxonomy and museum curation
  • Pollination
  • Biodiversity, endemism and biogeography
  • Invasive species
  • Habitat and species conservation
