Personal profile

Willing to supervise doctoral students

The Role of Environmental Change in Gene Regulatory Network Evolution

Research interests

My work broadly focuses on using experimental evolution to understand fundamental questions concerning ecological and evolutionary processes. Specifically, I use microbial experimental evolution in combination with molecular and bioinformatic techniques to determine the evolutionary drivers of gene regulatory networks (GRNs). In addition, I use experimental evolution with cancer cell populations to understand how we might quantify the role of evolution by natural selection of clinically important cancerous traits.

Other responsibilities

I am also a passionate advocator of early years science communication. I have written two books on evolutionary biology for an audience ranging from 6 - 12 years old. For more information see
