Research Summary

Mathematical ecology and insect dispersal.

Courses & Teaching

Applied mathematics; vector calculus; differential geometry; complex analysis.


My current research interests lie in the areas of mathematical ecology and insect dispersal. I believe strongly in interdisciplinary research, and much of my work is now in collaboration with biologists. My approach is project oriented; I use a range of mathematical tools, and I’m involved in all aspects of the research program, from data collection to model formulation and analysis.
