Helen Phillips, Group Leader

Following the completion of my PhD (2017, Imperial College London), I completed postdocs in Germany (iDiv, 2016-2020), the UK (Natural History Museum, 2021), and a Global Maria Curie Fellowship (2021-2023, hosted by Netherlands Institute of Ecology with secondment at Saint Mary’s University, Canada).

My passion is using big datasets to answer ecological questions at large scales. I have a soft spot in my heart for the humble earthworm, and so have been focusing on them in recent years. There is a wealth of knowledge about earthworms at species-, community- and regional- levels, which allows plenty of interesting analyses to be done.
