Current Position:

I am an associate lecturer of animal behaviour and evolution teaching undergraduate modules for the School of Biology. I also am conducting research on neuropeptide hormones and their role in social behaviour, mother-infant dynamics and energy balance.

My research interests include:

  • Hormonal impacts on individual behaviour and physiology.
  • Maternal and social behaviour.
  • The physiology of energetics and how this links to individual behaviour and survival.
  • Particular interest in the neuropeptide oxytocin, which much of my current research centers around.
