Research

I am completing my MScRes on the Biogeographical History of North American Snakes, focusing on phylogeny and reticulate evolution.

My undergraduate thesis focused on niche modelling of rattlesnake hybrid zones in southwestern New Mexico and West Texas. My thesis was titled 'Rattlesnake Sex: the ins-and-outs of hybridisation in Crotalus scutulatus and C. viridis'. This work is currently unpublished.

I am currently taking a break from Zoology and am undertaking a PGCE in Secondary Education (Chemistry) at Bangor University. This is due to be completed in 2021. 

Personal

I moved to North Wales in 2015 to start my undergrad degree in Zoology with Herpetology, and fell in love with the surrounding area. I decided to stay at Bangor University to achieve my MScRes degree, which is supervised by Izzy Winder and Wolfgang Wuster, and involves data collection in Arizona/New Mexico.

I plan to undertake a PhD after completion of my MSc.
