Evolutionary ecology explicitly links ecological and life-history thinking. We are interested in developing mathematical models for addressing a wide range of problems in evolutionary ecology including the evolution of parental care, longevity and cooperation. Central to our research paradigm is distinguishing between the evolution and maintenance of life-history strategies.
Jared completed his undergraduate in mathematics and French literature at the University of Sydney. He is interested broadly in the application of mathematics to problems in ecology and evolutionary biology. His current projects focus on the evolution of senescence and human longevity, and the evolution of sleep. He is jointly supervised by Prof. Mike Bonsall and Prof. Philip Maini.
