Ed Ivimey-Cook joins the lab

Ed joins our lab from October 1st as BBSRC-funded postdoc on the project that deals with transgenerational effects of dietary restriction on ageing and Darwinian fitness.

Ed has a general interest in ageing, maternal effects, and quantitative genetics. In particular, he is interested in understanding how biological processes and life-history trade-offs contribute to the vast observed diversity in trait ageing trajectories. For his PhD, he used experimental and widescale comparative analyses to investigate the detrimental effects of increasing maternal age manifested on offspring traits.
