My research interests are in mathematical biology, with a focus on spatial and evolutionary ecology. This involves interdisciplinary collaborations with biologists to develop, apply and analyse mathematical models in order to better understand population processes. I am particularly interested in assessing the effect of habitat fragmentation on species survival and the effect of environmental variation on the evolution and adaptation of life-history traits such as developmental timing. Mathematical approaches include analytical methods for dynamical systems, perturbation theory, and computational methods. Increasingly I have also become interested in formulating and testing quantitative models of biological and antigenic diversity.
