MA, PhD, FRS, CBE
Hope Professor of Entomology, Department of Zoology

Academic Background

I read Zoology at Oxford between 1976 and 1979 and moved to Imperial College to do a PhD (1983) in community ecology. I remained at Imperial as a post doc until 1985 (including a six-month spell working on a biological control project in South-east Asia) when I returned to the Zoology Department at Oxford as Demonstrator in Ecology. In 1987 I went back to Imperial as a lecturer, and remained there until 2006, throughout based on the Silwood Park Campus. From 1999 I was Director of the NERC Centre for Population Biology and from 2005 Head of the Division of Biology. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2001.
