I joined the Desert Ecology Research Group as a PhD student in August 2013 after completing an undergrad degree in Biology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands and a master’s degree in conservation biology at the University of Kent in the UK. My master’s research was focused on quantifying and optimising reptile survey methodology.

My current research investigates the effect of predation on the behaviour and habitat use of desert agamids. I am particularly interested in whether predation pressure can drive behavioural divergence.
