I am a mathematical biologist/ecologist and currently work as a postdoctoral research assistant in the lab led by Nicola R. Stanley-Wall in the Division of Molecular Microbiology and with Fordyce A. Davidson in the Division of Mathematics the University of Dundee. My current research focusses on the mathematical modelling of biofilm formation.

Previously, I obtained a PhD at the Maxwell Institute Graduate School in Analysis and its Applications (MIGSAA), a Centre for Doctoral Training at Heriot-Watt University and The University of Edinburgh. Working under the supervision of Jonathan A. Sherratt, my research focussed on the modelling of dryland vegetation patterns and in particular on competition and coexistence theory. For my thesis "Modelling dryland vegetation patterns: nonlocal dispersal, temporal variability in precipitation and species coexistence", I received the Reinhart Heinrich Award 2020 from the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology.
