#UEACEEC21 – meet the organisers!

The Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation (CEEC) Rebellion is an informal student-run meeting which aims to bring together CEEC faculty, MSc, PhD students and Postdocs from across the University of East Anglia to present and discuss research in ecology and evolutionary biology. 

This year’s CEEC rebellion (#UEACEEC21) is on 24th March 2021 and will be hosted on Twitter, with presentations taking the form of a short Twitter thread. This means that, for the first time ever, we will have the chance to share our work, and celebrate the research of the CEEC, with a much wider research community. 

The Rebellion is being organised by the lovely committee of people below- please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions about the event. You can contact us by email or tweet us @CEECRebellion.

Natalia ( is a 2nd year PhD student interested in bird communities within agricultural landscapes. She is currently working across Brazilian and British vineyards, trying to understand how bird communities change across working landscapes, and the functions that they take within farms to help inform bird conservation and sustainable fruit production. 

Sarah ( is a postdoc interested in host-microbe interactions within wild populations. She is currently using the Seychelles warbler as a study system to investigate how gut microbiome variation is linked to individual fitness and senescence.

Emily ( is a first year PhD student interested in phenotypic diversification and how this can ultimately lead to speciation. Emily’s project is looking to uncover the genetic mechanisms underpinning Müllerian mimicry in the Corydoras catfish.

George ( is a first year PhD student studying genetic rescue and the conservation of small populations. He is carrying out laboratory experiments using the model species Tribolium castaneum to investigate rescuing inbred populations. The results of these experiments will explore how genetic rescue may be employed in conservation situations.
