After 6 months maternity leave, I’m very excited to be moving (with my new little family!) to New Zealand in October to take up a 6 month Endeavour postdoc fellowship at the University of Auckland.
I’ll be working with Ecology Ngatahi Lab who are doing some really fantastic research in urban environments and surrounds in Auckland. I can’t wait to get there and meet everybody and get back into research for the first time in over a year!
In an attempt to diversify my invertebrate taxonomic expertise, this time I’ll be working on beetles. I hope to use this diverse taxa as a model in which to study how the functional traits of species and communities change with human habitat disturbance.
Stay tuned for some exciting research adventures in the land of the long white cloud!
