Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow of Evolutionary Genetics , University of Bath

My work broadly focuses on using experimental evolution to understand fundamental questions concerning ecological and evolutionary processes. Specifically, I use microbial experimental evolution in combination with molecular and bioinformatic techniques to determine the evolutionary drivers of gene regulatory networks (GRNs). In addition, I use experimental evolution with cancer cell populations to understand how we might quantify the role of evolution by natural selection of clinically important cancerous traits. I am also a passionate advocator of early years science communication. I have written two books on evolutionary biology for an audience ranging from 6 - 12 years old.
