|Biography||I am currently employed as a Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Biology linked between the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Biological 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 2010-2013.
|Current research||I currently have two main areas of research interest in the rapidly expanding fields of Mathematical Biology and Ecology:
1. 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.
I am linked with the Department of Biological Sciences and work closely with the Algae and Grazers Research Group and the Coral Reef Research Unit (CRRU).
|Research interests||Behavioural ecology:
- Animal movement and dispersal
- Random walks and diffusion
- Path analysis of movement data
- Behaviour of animal groups
- Human crowds
- Fisheries assessment and management
- Marine reserves
- Plankton dynamics
- Tri-trophic systems
|Teaching responsibilities||I will be teaching the following Mathematical Sciences courses in 2012/13:
- MA333 Mathematical Biology (Spring)
I will also be teaching on the following Biological Sciences courses in 2012/13:
- BS141 Life Science Key Skills (Spring)
