I obtained my MSci at the University of Glasgow and my PhD at the University of Manchester. Having worked increasingly on mathematical models inspired by biological problems, I then went on to take up postdoctoral research positions in Ecology and Evolution departments at Princeton University and the University of Zurich.

In 2017 I was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship, which funded two years of research in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath. I am continuing this research here at York, where I moved in 2019 to take up a Lectureship in Mathematical Biology.



My research used mathematical models to try and understand and predict observed eco-evolutionary patterns. I am particularly interested in how stochasticity (noise) can affect the behaviour of these models. From a biological perspective, this work falls into a number themes, including:

  • Population Genetics
  • The Evolution of Sexual Reproduction
  • Public Goods and Multicellularity
  • The Maintenance and Stability of Complex Ecosystems
