I’ve found mathematics fascinating all of my life and I am now lucky enough to study it every day. I apply mathematical tools to help understand nature and how we are changing it.

I’m currently a PhD Student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield and  I  specialise in  models which describe ecological processes.

I enjoy promoting my research area of Mathematical Biology to  the general public and aspire to be a popular scientist, alongside continuing with my teaching and research.

I’m a trained secondary mathematics teacher and I now use these skills to teach undergraduate level tutorials and outreach programs in Sheffield.

Outside of mathematics  I love nature, particularly bird watching and British natural history. I’m lucky enough to study Long Tailed Tits for my PhD project. I’ve travelled in Central and South America and I have become quite infatuated with the wildlife there, I hope to go back soon!
