Toby Doyle

Solar Research Technician

 Environment and Sustainability Institute 

 

Environment and Sustainability Institute, University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall, TR10 9FE, UK

 Office hours:

0800-1600, Tuesday-Friday

Overview

I am the solar lab research technician working with Asif Tahir and Tapas Mallick. I come from a biology background but have keen interest in renewable energy and sustainable development.

I am previously involved in a project investigating the environmental and genetic basis of migration in the marmalade hoverfly with Dr. Karl Wotton. Here we investigate the spectacular long-distance migrations of insectsto determine how these tiny organisms move over vast distances and the ecological consequences of these movements.

Other positions held at the University of Exeter have included projects investigating the genetic basis of resistance in the Indian meal moth, taxonomic work exploring the role of invertebrates in crop yield and a project investigating pollinator disease transmission within the agricultral landscape. I come from an ecology background, previously working as an assistant ecologist at WYG group.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Fieldwork
  • Molecular biology
  • Taxonomy
  • Renewable energy systems
