During a Psychology degree I became interested in Artificial Intelligence, specifically the prospect of capturing aspects of biological intelligence by mimicking insects. This led to a PhD at Sussex with Prof Tom Collett, where we have studied spatial cognition in ants. Following my DPhil I completed BBSRC, Leverhulme and RCUK postdocs before becoming a Reader in 2012.

Community and Business

I am a firm believer that, as a University, we should engage with the public - especially schools. Consequently a key departmental role is as a provider of workshops for schools visits, I am also the organiser of the Biology Experience Days for Year 12s.

I have regularly represented the University at the Brighton Science Festival and have also presented at the prestigious Royal Society Summer Science Festival.
