I'm always keen to hear from potential PhD students, postdocs, collaborators or anyone interested in my work. Please get in touch!

I am a mathematical biologist/ecologist with particular interests in pattern formation, competition and coexistence theory, and evolution. Click here to find out more about my work.

I joined the University of Warwick as an assistant professor in 2024. Prior to that, I spent a year (2023) as a postdoctoral researcher in the Evolutionary Biology Group led by Klaus Reinhold at the University of Bielefeld. Between 2020 and 2022, I was a postdoc 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. I obtained my 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 in 2020, where I worked under the supervision of Jonathan A. Sherratt.
