I am currently employed as a Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Biology in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Essex, UK. Click for a brief Career outline.
I am currently an associate member of the National Centre for Statistical Ecology (NCSE).
I am currently a member of the NERC Peer Review College for 2010-2014.
I currently have two main areas of research interest in the rapidly expanding fields of Mathematical Biology and Ecology:
1. Movement & Behavioural Ecology: modelling the behaviour, movement and dispersal of animals, micro-organisms and cells;
2. Population Ecology: mathematical analysis and simulation of the population dynamics and optimal management strategies of fisheries and marine ecosystems.
My research is currently linked with the School of Biological Sciences and I work closely with the Algae and Grazers Research Group and the Coral Reef Research Unit (CRRU).
Movement & Behavioural ecology:
- Animal movement and dispersal
- Random walks and diffusion
- Path analysis of movement data
- Behaviour of animal groups
- Human crowd behaviour
- Fisheries assessment and management
- Marine reserves
- Plankton dynamics
- Tri-trophic systems
I will be teaching the following Mathematical Sciences courses in 2013-14:
- MA199 Mathematics Careers & Employability (All year)
- MA302 Complex Variables and Applications (Spring)
- MA333 Mathematical Biology (Spring)
I will also be teaching on the following Biological Sciences courses in 2013-14:
- BS707 Methods in Tropical Marine Biology (Spring)
