Student Representative

I am quite new to entomology but have always been interested in the animal world. I completed my undergraduate degree in Zoology at the University of Lincoln where I became fascinated by the diversity and value of insects. From there I stayed on at the University of Lincoln and am currently studying for an MSc by Research in Evolution and Ecology. For this I have been surveying a new rewilding site (Wilder Doddington, Lincolnshire) for Silphidae and looking at the ecosystem services that Nicrophorus vespilloides provide.
