My PhD is based on decision-making, for which I am using two different species to determine whether individuals change their decisions based on context (such as the quality of options available). The species I am using are the parasitoid wasp Nasonia vitripennis, which I study in the lab, and wild rufous hummingbirds (Selasphorus rufus) which I study in the Canadian Rockies with our collaborator Dr Andy Hurly (University of Lethbridge). I am jointly supervised by Dr Susan Healy and Dr David Shuker, and my research is funded by the BBSRC Eastbio Doctoral Training Partnership.
