Profile

I am a PhD student working within the Bioscience department under the supervision of  Professor Juliet Osborne. My PhD is focusing on the risk assessment of pesticides on the honeybee. This will be attempted by creating a computer model of pesticides in the landscape to act as part of a larger honeybee model, BEEHAVE, developed by Dr Matthias Becher.

Research interests

  • Modelling the populations of various animal species and the relevant stressors acting on them as an aid to their conservation.
