  • About Me

    I'm currently a Research Fellow in the Department of Zoology at the University of Cambridge.


    Broadly speaking, I am interested in parental effects and how social experiences acquired across the lifespan could be inherited by, and impose specific developmental trajectories, upon on future generations of offspring. Further, I am interested in the adaptive significance of epigenetic changes and their implications for the evolution of behavioural traits.


    I have previously worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Genetics (University of Cambridge) working with Prof. Anne Ferguson-Smith. I completed my PhD with Prof. Frances A. Champagne in Behavioural Neuroscience at Columbia University.
