Self-funded PhD- Population biology of coconut crabs

Population biology of coconut crabs. Anthropogenic change has led to highly fragmented habitats but widely dispersed disjointed populations living there are a challenge to monitor because sub-population sizes may be very small, difficult to access, and time consuming to sample regularly. Read more

Self-funded PhD- Re-engineering Golgi dynamics in plants – investigating the role of myosin receptors

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Re-engineering Golgi dynamics in plants – investigating the role of myosin receptors

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Effects of age on disease defence strategies in ants

Group living offers favourable conditions for the spread of infectious diseases, because high population densities and frequent social contacts facilitate pathogen transmission. Read more

Self-funded PhD- The genomic basis of major evolutionary transitions

Life on Earth has undergone several major evolutionary transitions that dramatically changed its biology. These include exciting innovations such as the emergence of multicellular organisms (animals, plants, fungi), the evolution of terrestrial organisms, or parasitism. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Sublethal effects of novel insecticides on a beneficial parasitoid wasp and the implications for biological control

Broad-spectrum chemical insecticides such as neonicotinoids are a major cause of beneficial insect declines globally. In response to this, bans and restrictions on neonicotinoid use have been implemented on a global scale in an attempt to reverse trends in insect biodiversity loss. Read more
