I am a biodiversity theorist with a particular interest in ecological neutral theory. I arrived at Imperial College during January 2012 and am grateful to the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) for funding me in my current position with a postdoctoral research fellowship. Prior to this I was funded for 3 years with a postdoctoral research fellowship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). I was hosted by the University of Leeds but spent 50% of my time abroad at the University of Groningen and the University of Idhao (Moscow,ID). My PhD (2005-2008) titled ‘Spatially Explicit Neutral Models of Community Assembly’ was carried out at the University of Leeds under the supervision of Stephen Cornell and Bill Kunin. My undergraduate training (2001-2005) was in mathematics at the University of Warwick and had a strong bias towards scientific computing and life science applications.
