Welcome to my site! I am a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Jonathan Losos' Lab in the Dept of Biology at Washington University, St. Louis. Originally from England, I decided I had served my time in the rain and, following my MSc, had earned a move to sunnier climes. I arrived in Miami in the Autumn of 2012 to begin my PhD in the Feeley Lab at Florida International University.
My PhD dissertation research focused on attempting to synthesize the relationship between ecological and microevolutionary processes and macroevolutionary patterns. Specifically, using Anolis lizards introduced to areas outside of their native range, I am investigating novel community assembly, coexistence mechanisms and character displacement.
Additionally, I have deep research interests in climate change and conservation biology, with a strong focus on tropical ecosystems. My research spans from developing theoretical models of climate change impacts, to empirical monitoring of long-term tropical community dynamics.
