Siobhan Hillman (BBSRC-funded PhD student)

In collaboration with the British Beet Research Organisation (BBRO) and John Innes Centre, Siobhan is studying the ecology and population genetics of the mangold fly – a leaf mining pest of sugar beet. See Siobhan on Twitter.

Rebecca Lewis (UEA-funded PhD student)

Becky uses genetic approaches and experimental evolution to understand how population demography and adaptation interact to shape variation in red flour beetle populations subjected to extreme temperatures. See Becky on Twitter.

Claudia Martin (NERC-funded PhD student)

In collaboration with IPNA-CSIC (Tenerife), Claudia is using whole genome sequencing and ecological field work to study evolutionary adaptation in Berthelot’s pipits. See Claudia on Twitter.

Michael Pointer (BBSRC-funded PhD student)

Mike is using experimental evolution to understand the evolutionary ecology of population establishment and spread, with red flour beetles used as models. See Mike’s website and see him on Twitter.
