I am interested in community-level interactions between plants and their pollinators and the study of these relationships using interaction networks.

Current Research

I manage the research project "Urban Pollinators: their ecology and conservation". This large-scale project is studying insect pollinators in urban habitats around the UK. The work is funded as part of the UK Insect Pollinators Initiative and is a collaborative project led by the University of Bristol. For further information see
