Isobel Ronai

Isobel Ronai

Isobel started her Ph.D. in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Ben Oldroyd (Behaviour and Genetics of Social Insects Laboratory, School of Biological Sciences) and Prof. Paul Griffiths. Isobel’s interdisciplinary Ph.D. project is on the genetic basis of worker sterility in the honey bee and philosophy of genetics. In particular, Isobel will investigate how molecular biology techniques exploit biological mechanisms.
