I was delighted  to accept a research assistant position within the ecology of vision group here at Bristol University where I will begin working on a project studying the polarization vision of horse and stable flies. My interest in visual ecology was sparked during my masters degree at the university of Leeds where I completed a research project on polarotactic vision in dragonflies and damselflies. The project introduced me to animal vision and fostered what has become a keen enthusiasm for visual anatomy and ecology. I hope to continue to pursue this interest by studying for a PhD on mantis shrimp vision in the near future. 

Between joining the visual ecology team and completing my undergraduate and masters degrees, I spent some time within industry and the charitable sector, fulfilling roles ranging from ecological consultancy to sustainable international development to habitat conservation and creation.
