PhD (Stony Brook)
Senior Lecturer

Departmental roles

Chair of Exceptional Circumstances Affecting Assessement



I am currently working on size-spectrum models of marine ecosystems with applications to fisheries policy.

I am leading the York node of the MINOUW consortium, an initiative to reduce unwanted catches in European fisheries.

My background is in Quantum Field Theory, String Theory, Integrable Systems and Quantum Groups. My current research is transferring some of the methods of these fields to theoretical ecology and mathematical biology.

I also have a wider interest in stochastic processes and complex networks.

Also see my publications on Google Scholar. My ORCID is 0000-0003-4092-8228
