Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

The focus of my research is the effect of demographic noise in eco-evolutionary systems. I work on questions relating to the evolution of cooperation, sexual reproduction and multicellularity, as well as population genetics and ecosystem stability, each studied through the lens of stochastic dynamical systems. More information about my interests can be found on my website.
