I was always interested in animals and fascinated by animal behaviour. After a PhD at Cambridge University studying parental care in saltmarsh beetles, I switched to pheromones, the invisible chemical signals between animals. I am exploring how pheromones evolve, across the animal kingdom. In 2017 I published ‘Animal Behaviour: A Very Short Introduction [https://global.oup.com/academic/product/animal-behaviour-a-very-short-introduction-9780198712152]’ (Oxford University Press).
