Research

My research is concerned with the behavioural plasticity and learning capabilities of insect pollinators and pest species, and how this may influence their foraging decisions and interactions with their host plants. I am also interested in how the perceptual abilities of insects may have affected the evolution of plant-pollinator relationships. 

I am also passionate about science communication and encouraging young people into STEM careers, particularly those from groups which are currently under-represented in the science community.
