I am a community and behavioural ecologist with the majority of my research to date focusing on invertebrates. My interests lie in understanding how community structure and behavioural processes are affected by anthropogenic disturbance, especially in tropical forest ecosystems. My previous work includes research on the competitive interactions within ant communities of Sabah, Malaysia and research on the the optimal foraging choices of Honey bees in the UK. I worked as a research assistant as part of the LOMBOK consortium conducting research on invertebrate dispersal in riparian forests in Sabah, Malaysia. I have recently started a PhD at Imperial College.
