Collaboration interests:
I am interested in collaborating with researchers in the tropics in terrestrial invertebrate ecology and behaviour with a particular (but not exclusive) focus on arachnids, lepidopterans and hymenopterans.
I am a research associate at the Department of Zoology at Oxford University where my current research focuses on analysing the geometry of the spider's orb web as well as the rules governing their behaviour. I have a PhD in biomimetics on functional morphology and locomotory behaviour of ragworms from the University of Bath and have previously worked on flight control in insects in Germany and tropical orb spiders in Panama. I have also a broad interest in terrestrial invertebrate ecology. Most of these diverse projects have resulted in large data-sets which I have analysed using a wide range of statistical tests. In addition to my research I am Co-Director of the Postgraduate Certificate of Ecological Survey Techniques and Director of Studies for Biological Sciences in Public Programmes at the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education. I give tutorials and supervise undergraduate projects at the Department of Zoology.
