My research aims to understand the influence of climate on how organisms perform and where species are. In February 2018 I started a new postdoctoral fellowship at the CLIME lab at Stellenbosch University, South Africa, supported by the Claude Leon Foundation. Using a mix of modelling and field and lab experiments, I am continuing my work on the interactive effects of climate change and plant invasions on the activity patterns of a tiny tortoise endemic to South Africa. And we’ve just finished another field season!
