Macroevolution and macroecology
Research Associate, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus
I'm interested in evolutionary biology at a large scale; the stories behind the history of life and the methodologies with which it is investigated. I'm particularly interested in ways of combining classic methods such as descriptive palaeontology with modern bioinformatic tools such as phylogenomics and mathematical modelling.
I also actively communicate my work through teaching and by promoting evolutionary sciences to the general public (namely through the EcoEvo@TCD blog and events such as Discover Research Night).
