I'm a PhD student working at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and Oxford University, studying the Harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis, and the impact it is having on our native ladybird species. Prior to the PhD I worked on the associations between butterflies, pathogens and parasitoids, and lepidoptera remain one of my favourite insect groups. I've also worked for the RSPB and the Wildlife Trusts, and in farming.
