Research

I am completing my MScRes on the Biogeographical History of North American Snakes, focusing on evolution, adaptation, taxonomy, life history, and distribution.

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 This work is currently unpublished.

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 inolves data collection in Arizona/New Mexico.

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