Overview

I studied my BSc with Hons. in Biology at the University of Nottingham, completing my second year at the University of Toronto. I then studied my MSc in Animal Behaviour at the University of Exeter. While studying these degrees, I developed a keen interest in ecology & evolution, and how these relate to behaviour.

I have also worked as a research assistant for multiple research groups, such as the PEC group and the Qvarnström Flycatcher Project.

I am currently an MPhil/PhD researcher at the University of Exeter, as part of the CRAB group studying tactical adjustment of dynamic courtship behaviours using state-dependent dynamic game models and data collected from a wild population of fiddler crabs (Afruca tangeri). I am currently interested in investigating how male fiddler crabs adjust their courtship behaviours in response to internal (such as their energetic state) and external (such as levels of intra-sexual competition) factors.
