Dr. Tim Harvey-Samuel, (England)

Tim completed his undergraduate and masters degrees in Biology and Applied Ecology from Imperial College London and Silwood Park campuses. After a year spent volunteering at tropical biology research projects in Singapore and Borneo,  he began his PhD at the University of Oxford in conjunction with OXITEC Ltd. His current research involves designing and testing genetic pest management strategies for the diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella). In Prof. Shelton’s lab Tim is investigating the potential role of released engineered insects for managing resistance in transgenic field crops.

Outside of the lab Tim enjoys listening to music, playing the drums, fishing, diving, hiking, cycling and generally exploring new places.
