• About me


      I'm a mathematical ecologist and Senior Lecturer in Mathematics and Statistics at Sheffield University. Most of my research is driven by a few fundamental questions:

    • Can we construct techniques to help predict the effects of future environmental change on the ability of animal populations to survive?
    • How can we infer the nature of animal interaction mechanisms, both with each other and their environment, from movement data?
    • How do complex systems of animal movements and interactions give rise to emergent population-level patterns?
    • See my publications page for more.

      My research is currently part-funded by NERC grant NE/R001669/1

      When I'm not doing science, I'm usually trying to aid my wife, Anna, in the endeavour of bringing up our two beautiful twins, Willow and Rowan.
