My research focuses on understanding the role of dispersal in eco-evolutionary dynamics and how this interacts with environmental change and I do so by combining experimental work and modelling approaches.

At the moment I am focusing on the bulb mite ( Rhizoglyphus robini) as my model system. In collaboration with Dr. Isabel Smallegange, the aim is to determine the influence of dispersal propensity on population size and structure, life histories and how these change with stochastic environments. I am also collaborating with Dr. Gregory Roth to develop a model that incorporates the costs of dispersal life-histories and emmigration effects on natal populations.
