Research summary

I am a Developmental Biologist, mainly interested in spatial pattern formation in insects and in evolution of the mechanisms involved. Past research projects have included insect  limb regeneration; segmentation in insect embryos; and the control of growth and size in relation to temperature. My current research concerns the specification of colour patterns on developing butterfly and moth wings.
