Biological Sciences (PhD)

Area of research

Molecular phylogenetics of annelids, molluscs and other lophotrochozoans.


Activities / Findings

I am interested in exploring macroevolution through the inference of phylogenies, particularly from a molecular perspective. I'm currently looking into the evolutionary history of spiralia. I also have interests in modelling of molecular evolution.

I am interested in graphical communication and scientific education, and develop undergraduate educational resources for the University of Bristol.
