AUTOBIOGRAPHY

I studied Zoology as an undergraduate here at Oxford from 2007-2010, and then completed a Masters by Research at the University of Liverpool in 2012. I investigated invasion dynamics and apparent competition between the red and the grey squirrels in Britain using mathematical models. I joined the EGI in October 2013 and am doing a DPhil under the supervision of Prof. Tommaso Pizzari in the EGI and Prof. Sunetra Gupta in the EEID.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

For my DPhil I explore the interplay between the sexually transmitted microbiota and the evolution of mating systems and behaviours. I will be combining both empirical and theoretical approaches to investigate the dynamics of STIs and the composition of the reproductive microbiota in relation to mating behaviour andĀ host immunogenetics using a study population of sexually promiscuous Red Junglefowl (GallusĀ gallus).
