About

I did my Ph.D. University of Sheffield, UK, and I am now working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zürich. My interests centre on the extinction of species and collapse of populations, topics which I investigate using a combination of mathematical models, microcosm experiments, and analysis of real world population data. My previous work has looked at our ability to accurately gauge whether species extinct or extant, from a conservation perspective, as well as the potential effect temperature change can have on population persistence, and community structure. My current work focuses on developing and testing early warning signals of population collapse, with a view to predicting regime shifts prior to their occurrence. I am also continuing my work on conservation issues, and I am part of an international collaboration looking at the vulnerability of parasites to climatic change. I have been privileged enough to work with people from a diverse set of backgrounds, from theoretical ecologists to conservation biologists, with current collaborators in nine institutes in four countries.
