Mr Ayman Asiri
My interests lie in all things entomology, but I'm particularly interested in how insects respond to and are impacted by disease.
I graduated from the University of Plymouth with BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences in 2020. During which I undertook a placement year where I worked as a curatorial assistant in an entomology laboratory, and lived in the Appenine mountains of Italy working on a bear conservation project. After graduating from my undergraduate I went on to do an MSc by Research in Entomology at Reading University.
My current research focusses on disease in honeybees, but during my degrees I had the opportunity to work on research projects involving a wide range of invertebrates, including isopod immunity, ladybird disease and colour forms, and spider biodiversity.
