• About me

    •  

      I'm a mathematical ecologist, currently a 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.

      NEWS! Fully funded PhD opportunity on the evolution of foraging strategies and personalities in sea birds, together with Samantha Patrick at Liverpool University. Please apply here or contact me if you are interested.

      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.
