GEE is home to over 50 research groups and a thriving community of some 200 Postdoctoral Researchers, PhD Students, and support staff. This section of our site is aimed at showcasing our GEE postdoctoral community, by presenting our representatives and including a list of our postdoctoral researchers. We also signpost resources, training opportunities, networks and more.
Who we are
Meet our Postdoctoral Representatives
I have been a post-doctoral researcher in Seirian Sumner’s lab (CBER) since November 2019. My research focuses on the evolution of social organization.
I investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying what makes a wasp social or not, using a combination of fieldwork, lab work, and bioinformatics. I received my Ph.D. in ant genomics from Queen Mary University of London, after four years of NERC DTP funding.
I have been a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Biodiversity Change group, led by Tim Newbold, since joining CBER in October 2018. I first worked on the BIOTA project, where we were interested in the interactions between biodiversity, agriculture, and trade. I now work on the GLiTRS project which has a focus on global insect biodiversity change.
Before joining CBER, I completed my PhD at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology where my research focussed on assessing trends in UK species occupancy using biological records and occupancy modelling.
