AlpheyDr Nina Alphey
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford
Nina has an MA from Cambridge University and a DPhil from Oxford. She lives behind a keyboard at the University of Oxford and at Imperial College London and the Pirbright Institute, where she uses mathematical models to analyse new genetic-engineering-based methods to control insect populations that cause harm in public health or agriculture. Unusually for a biologist, Nina is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, so she likes to consider costs and benefits of insect control too. Her past career included roles in professional ethics for accountants and the regulation of auditors, and she has been an “Independent Person” consulted by Oxfordshire County Council on matters relating to the members’ code of conduct for local councillors.
