I am a postdoc at the University of York, currently studying the evolutionary and ecological responses of British butterflies and moths to climate change. I am generally interested in Lepidoptera, their interactions with plants, and the effects of anthropogenic environmental change. During my PhD, I studied the effects of light pollution and wildfire on moths and their pollination interactions with plants. As an undergraduate, I studied the factors influencing the distribution of the Striped Lychnis, a rare species of British moth. I've been an enthusiastic moth-trapper, bird-watcher and naturalist for a number of years.
I receive funding from the Natural Environment Research Council.
