I completed my PhD on the chemical and behavioural ecology of leaf-cutting ants in 2000. I then spent three years working at the University of Copenhagen funded by a Marie Curie Fellowship and the Carlsberg foundation, before taking up another Marie Curie Fellowship, this time at the Universities of Sydney and Sheffield. I moved to the University of Leeds as a lecturer in 2006 and was promoted to Reader in 2010. I joined the University of Sussex in 2012.
