I am a Marie-Curie Fellow based at the Université de Rennes 1 with research interests in the areas of entomology, macroecology, physiology, behaviour and resilience. More specifically, my research aims to further understanding of the impacts of extreme climatic events on the distributions and abundance of natural biological control species so that we may develop habitat management practices to safeguard agro-ecosystem function in a changing climate.

Prior to my fellowship position, I was engaged in a challenging and exciting multidisciplinary project based at the University of Birmingham focused on resilient systems. For this, I was interested in applying knowledge of resilience theory within an ecological context to the wider biological, physical and social sciences to further increase current knowledge on resilient systems; In particular, the role redundant capacity plays in building resilience.
