Teaching and supervision


I teach on several modules of the MSc Conservation Ecology, and am the module leader for "Career Development and Research Skills" and "Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services". I also teach on modules in the biological BSc courses. I am supervising undergraduate project students on projects screening for symbionts and viruses in bees.


I am broadly interested in the evolution of inherited microbial symbionts in insects. Please see my personal webpage for more details on current projects.
