PhD student (Imperial College London)
I am a PhD student under the supervision of Miguel B. Araujo (Imperial College London) and Andy Purvis (Natural History Museum, London). I earned my Bachelors in Biological Sciences from Oxford University and completed my Masters at Imperial College London.
I have developed academic interests that straddle ecology and evolution, with previous work ranging from patterns of memetic evolution in song birds (UK) and howler monkeys (Mexico) to the phylogenetic distribution of jump dispersal events in New World passerines.
As such, my research will focus on incorporating ideas of community ecology and niche modelling from a phylogenetic perspective into species distribution modelling to help overcome its limitations in predicting species distributions under various climate change regimes.
