I’m an ecologist with a background in computer engineering that have found my perfect scientific niche within the field of theoretical ecology. I have a broad interest in the ecological and evolutionary processes that governs the ‘tangled bank’ and underpins the ‘balance of nature’ of natural ecosystems. In my research I focus on the effects of environmental variation and within- and between species interactions on the dynamics, stability and functioning of ecological networks.
Currently, I’m a NERC-funded postdoc at Swansea University working together with Mike Fowler (Swansea) and Steve Sait (Leeds University). We study a host-parasitoid system and combine theoretical and experimental approaches to investigate the effects of environmental variation on the ecology and evolution of insect-natural enemy interactions.
