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 September 2004.

Research Interests

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.

Previous research

Mathematical 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.
