“My PhD investigates the effect of temperature on British butterflies, focusing on caterpillars, using a mix of both lab and field research. As each life stage of a butterfly varies in both form and function, they are likely to have different heat requirements, though what these are and how they change throughout the life cycle is currently unknown.
The goal of my research is to improve our predictions of how insect populations may change in the future, and improve the management and design of nature reserves to maintain butterflies in the face of climate change.”
