Starting a research group

Soon I will be starting my own research group at the Zoology Department at the University of Cambridge. Exciting times ahead! I will be joining the exciting Cambridge Cichlid community, collaborating with Eric Miska (Gurdon Institute) and Richard Durbin (Genetics Department) groups. 


Lots of more pigmentation evolution work lies ahead. The theme of the lab is to use a mix of cellular and development biology with quantitative and population genetics within and between cichlid species. Current projects focus on eggspot pigmentation patterning, neural crest cells diversification and regulatory evolution. If you would like to join us drop me an email
