• 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.

      I am always on the lookout for good PhD students to supervise. Please contact me if you are interested in this possibility.

      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.
