I have recently joined the Moyroud group as a PhD student. I am interested in the evolution and development of floral traits, in particular traits which influence pollinator behaviour and interactions. My PhD project focusses on flower patterning in Hibiscus trionum. I hope to find the regulatory genes responsible for the diverse bullseye patterns seen in Hibiscus trionum and how these different patterns influence pollinator behaviour.
