Research projects

I carry out much of my work in Cusuco National Park, Honduras, with Operation Wallacea. This has involved collaboration with a number of different researchers from around the world. More details about the ongoing work in Cusuco can be found here.

As an undergraduate at Oxford University, I carried out two major pieces of work worth mentioning here. My research project was my first foray to Cusuco National Park, and examined resource utilisation and morphology of Scarabaeinae dung beetles. I also wrote a literature review/essay on the causes and impacts of Colony Collapse Disorder. More details here.

During my masters I undertook two theses. The first researches heterogeneity in the responses of species to climate change in the arctic using meta-analytical techniques, currently being prepared for publication. The second explores cross-taxonomic patterns in the responses of invertebrates to disturbance patches in Cusuco as part of my ongoing research in the region. More details here.

My PhD research will involve developing novel techniques for studying invertebrates in the tropical forest canopy, and then applying these techniques to investigating the resilience of these understudied invertebrate communities to climate change. The novel techniques include aerial robotic canopy access and next-generation genomics. Fieldwork continues to take place in Cusuco National Park, Honduras, where I will also continue my other research interests. More details here.
