Jamie first arrived at Edge Hill University in 2020 to study the MSc Conservation Management from a background in music performance and teaching. His thesis investigated habitat preferences of Great Britain's only mygalophorph spider Atypus affinis.
Successful completion of the taught masters was followed by short-term technical, teaching support and associate tutor roles with the university and a six-month research assistant position with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
He returned to the university in 2023 as a GTA Postgraduate Researcher (PhD), investigating invertebrate community response to regenerative farming practices and wood pasture establishment at the Lowther Estate in Pentrith, Cumbria.
