Research Interests

I am in interested using laboratory and field studies to explore the interactions between aphids and their endosymbiotic bacteria. I am particularly interested in how these interactions can affect or be affected by aphid parasitoids and host-plants. Prior to starting my DPhil I completed a BSc in Zoology at the University of Sheffield and an MSc in Medical Entomology for Disease Control at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where my research project focussed on midgut binding of Leishmania parasites in Culicoides midges.
