Research interests

Most of my research uses mathematical tools to shed light on a few fundamental questions in ecology:

  • Can we construct techniques to help predict the effects of future environmental change on the ability of animal populations to survive?
  • How can we infer the nature of animal interaction mechanisms, both with each other and their environment, from movement data?
  • How do complex systems of animal movements and interactions give rise to emergent population-level patterns?
