My research focuses on understand 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. The aim is 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.
