I graduated from The University of Manchester in 2016 with an undergraduate degree in Biology and now work towards an MPhil in Evolutionary Biology. My project focuses on the epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity in Daphnia and seeks to establish the consequences of changing environmental conditions on DNA methylation patterns and associated gene expression differences.
