Dr Emily Hornett PhD

Research Associate Evolution, Ecology & Behaviour


    Personal Statement

    I gained my PhD in Evolutionary Genetics at UCL - investigating the interaction between Hypolimnas bolina butterflies and male-killing Wolbachia bacteria. Following this I held Research Associate positions at the University of Liverpool, the University of Cambridge, and Helsinki University, Finland. Most recently I was granted a Marie Curie International Overseas fellowship held at Penn State University, USA, and the University of Cambridge. During this time I studied the influence of changing environmental conditions, particularly temperature, on the insect microbiome (butterflies and flies).
