Biography

I was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand. I conducted my undergraduate studies in the Victoria University of Wellington as well as my Master's degree, where I worked under Professor Simon Davy studying the genetic diversity of the Symbiodiniaceae (mutualistic endosymbionts of coral reefs). I have come to Cambridge to further my research interests in ecological interactions and conservation by now studying parasitic endosymbioses, working with Dr David Aldridge in the Aquatic Ecology Group.

Research

I am interested in the parasites of freshwater mussels, how they affect these key ecosystem engineers, and their interaction with invasive bivalves.
