Who is your scientific inspiration and why?

Ledyard Stebbins, which I meet as an undergraduate student and sparked my interest in natural variation and evolution.

How would you describe your supervision style?

Supportive

In one or two sentences please describe your strategies regarding the following.
Provision of training:

Your training will be supervised predominantly by me and experienced post docs/PhD students.

Progression monitoring and management:

I am here for advice and guidance to help you reach the goals you set for yourself.

Communication:

The team has a Slack group chat with which we regularly communicate during the week. Whilst I expect you to keep up with my/ team communications I will expect you to manage your work/life balance.

At least once per week

In year 1 of PhD study, how often do your PhD students have a scheduled >30 minute 1:1 meeting with you?

At least once per week

In year 2 of PhD study, how often do your PhD students have a scheduled >30 minute 1:1 meeting with you?

At least once per fortnight

In year 3 of PhD study, how often do your PhD students have a scheduled >30 minute 1:1 meeting with you?

At least once per fortnight

What form do your 1:1 meetings with PhD students take?

Open door policy?

Yes, I am usually contactable for an instant response (if required) on every working day.

My expectation of PhD student working patterns?

The timing of work in my lab is completely flexible, and (other than attending pre-arranged meetings), I expect students to manage their own time.

Notice for feedback (e.g. on reports, manuscript drafts, thesis chapters)?

I need at least 1 week’s notice to provide feedback on written work of up to 5000 words.
