About

IMG_2235

I am a PhD student at the University of Auckland working with Dr Greg Holwell . I previously completed an undergraduate conjoint and honours degree at the same university with majors in English literature and Biology.

I am currently studying sexual selection in the New Zealand sheet-web spider (Cambridgea) with a particular focus on comparative morphology of weapons.

Over the past year I’ve been working on the Insects of New Zealand playing card project with illustrator Emma Scheltema.

When I’m not working I can be found doing stuff for/singing in the Auckland Youth Choir and overthinking video games and cartoons.
