Background and activities

I aim to provide integrated empirical and theoretical understanding of how ecological and evolutionary processes can combine to shape individual life-histories and drive population dynamics in nature. I am currently particularly interested in understanding how movements, in the form of dispersal and reversible seasonal migration, can link ecological and evolutionary dynamics. To achieve these aims I combine cutting-edge statistical and quantitative genetic analyses of field data with theoretical modelling to quantify joint environmental and genetic effects on life-history strategies and population outcomes. I am also committed to translating research outcomes into conservation policy and wider public understanding of science.

***Two postdoctoral research positions and a fully-funded PhD position in evolutionary ecology currently available - deadline Sept 21st 2021.
