ORCID: 0000-0003-1972-6787 I am currently using chemical ecology techniques to study the volatile chemicals that attract Musca sorbens to its breeding sites and to human eyes, in the hope of developing more accurate monitoring traps for this species, for the PhD "Flies and eyes: developing traps for the trachoma vector Musca sorbens". My PhD is funded by the BBSRC and MRC, and I am supervised by Dr James Logan (, Professor Steve Lindsay ( and Professor John Pickett ( of Rothamsted Research. I am also interested in science communication, and am on Twitter
