Postdoctoral Research Experience
I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Mathematical Biology at the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences of the University of Alberta from October 2004 to April 2008. I
completed my DPhil. in the
Centre for Mathematical Biology at the Mathematical Institute and in
the Department of Plant Sciences
of the University of Oxford in
I was a member of the ISIS invasions
project with Prof.
Mark Lewis and his research group. My research focusses on biological invasions, in particular
the biological control of rusty crayfish with smallmouth bass. An article in the
Edmonton Journal is an interview of
myself and Marjorie Wonham about applications of
mathematics to ecological problems. A local copy of the article is available
here. More details of my research perspectives are found on my research page.
modelling of rain forest regeneration dynamics. The Natural Environment Research Council
funded my DPhil. project. Please see my publications page for more
details. My thesis is also available online.
My interests lie in teaching life scientists and mathematicians tools and techniques that can be used in mathematical modelling real-world phenomena. Please see my teaching page for further details.
