NERC IRF and lab PI
I grew up in the great city of Belfast and first came to Cambridge to read Natural Sciences as an undergrad. I stayed on to do a PhD on primate brain evolution with Nick Mundy, then joined Judith Mank’s lab, briefly in Oxford and then at UCL, under successive early-career fellowships from The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 and The Leverhulme Trust. During this time I started a series of projects on brain evolution in Neotropical butterflies that developed into the research subject of my NERC Independent Research Fellowship, and brought me back to the Zoology department in 2016. Hobbies include: digging.
