Position: PhD Student
Project: Understanding generalism and specialism in parasitoid wasp: an evolutionary, genetic and behavioural perspective.
Research Interests: I am interested in understanding the evolution of generalism and specialism in parasitoid wasps, as well as the evolution of host range (i.e. parasitoid prey) and how this impacts speciation. I am also interested in understanding the difference between generalists and specialists at a genomic and behavioural level.
I previously studied the population genetic structure of the Common Wasp, Vespula vulgaris, across the UK using samples collected by citizen science (the Big Wasp Survey) (in prep).
