Postdoctoral Research Fellow in vibrational honeybee communication, Nottingham Trent University

Trained as a behavioural ecologist, my recent achievements have been in combining my knowledge of ecological and evolutionary theory with physical and computational science techniques to further our understanding of the invertebrate world that extends far beyond what is visible to the l naked eye, with a particular focus on the European honeybee (Apis mellifera).

My undergraduate degree was in Conservation Biology obtained from the University of Lincoln. I then went on to obtain a master's degree in Biology by research from the same institution for my study into how the physiochemical properties of water affect brainsize and cognition in 9-spined sticklebacks.

After 4 months as a Research Scientist for the agricultural company Crop Intellect, I embarked on a PhD at Nottingham Trent University studying vibrational communication in honeybees, being awarded my doctorate in December 2018.

As part of my career I have published four research papers, given talks at international conferences in the UK and overseas, contributed to world famous artwork and most importantly, had a hell of a lot of fun!
