Fiona Moon

I am a Research Technician employed on the NERC funded project to quantify female mate choice benefits in the three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus). My main responsibilities include collecting morphological data and carrying out behavioural studies at various time points to assess a variety of fitness traits.

I have recently completed my undergraduate degree in Zoology at the University of Edinburgh and have an interest in how life-history traits vary due to factors such as diet and temperature, and how this might influence evolutionary processes, including host-parasite co-evolution.

I also work in the Little lab (http://littlelab.bio.ed.ac.uk) investigating host-parasite interactions using the Daphnia magna-Pasteuria ramosa study system.
