Klodeta is a research associte in the group. She obtained a PhD in Mathematics from City, University of London where she modelled and explored the formation of dominance hierarchies in different species. Currently, she is working on developing mathematical models to investigate spatial mosquito dynamics and the effect of vector control technologies.
Isuru completed his Master's in Bioengineering at Imperial College London before coming to Oxford to join the Systems Biology Doctoral Training Center. His DPhil focusses on antibiotic resistance and developing models of resistance transfer in a populations of bacteria before verifying these models in the lab.
Rob studied at the University of Glasgow, holding both an undergraduate degree in Zoology and an MSc in Quantitative Methods in Biodiversity, Conservation and Epidemiology. He joined Oxford’s Balliol college in 2015 as part of the Environmental Research DTP, and is researching the role of interspecific interactions in the mitigation of vector-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue.
Katie completed an undergraduate in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge and an MSc in Epidemiology at Imperial College London. Katie then worked as a Global Health Research Consultant working on HIV and HCV in London and a Research Associate in Lyon. Katie joined Oxford as part of the Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP in 2015. Katie works broadly on the mathematical and behavioural ecology of human disease vectors, with particular emphasis upon environmental change.
Mati studied at Oxford University and Imperial College before joining the Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP. His master's thesis studied how eco-evolutionary dynamics generate biodiversity gradients across habitats. Currently Mati works with Stuart West and Michael Bonsall on interactions between eco-evolutionary processes and social evolution.
Anke completed her BSc and MSc at the University of Kiel, Germany, investigating the role of C-type Lectins in Caenorhabditis elegans' immunity. Her PhD investigates the heterogeneity of the pathogen Staphylococcus aureus in the tripartite system of the host C. elegans and the protective microbe Enterococcus faecalis. She is co-supervised by Kayla King.
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.
Andrew Snyder-Beattie holds degrees in biomathematics and economics and is currently pursuing a DPhil under the supervision of Professor Mike Bonsall and Professor Doyne Farmer.
Derek studied Biology at Yale University before arriving at Oxford on a 2014 Marshall Scholarship. He continues work from his time at Moffitt Cancer Center to investigate mathematical models of cancer disease and treatment. In this realm of mathematical oncology.
Chloë was a Daphne Jackson Trust Research Fellow. Chloë completed her DPhil in the group and has returned to Oxford to undertake a broad study looking at the role of climate change, agri-environment effects on butterfly population and metapopulation dynamics.
Maja Založnik studied EU regulation of genetically modified organisms as part of her undergraduate degree at the University of Ljubljana; geodemographic classification of census output areas for her MA thesis at Liverpool University, which is where she also completed her PhD investigating the robustness of iterative proportional fitting using UK census microdata.
Doran obtained a PhD in applied mathematics at the University of Cambridge, and an MMath&Phys in mathematics and physics at the University of Manchester.
Claire’s research investigated whether gene drives (which artificially promote the inheritance of a target gene) could be used in mosquitoes to fight diseases such as malaria and dengue fever.
Sandrine joined the Mathematical Ecology Research group when she held a One-Year Marie-Curie EIF Fellowship, 2008-2009.
Sinead is an evolutionary ecologist interested in the role of mothers and early-life experiences on development and evolution.
Sean studied Zoology at the University of Dundee before completing a Masters in Environmental Biology at the University of St Andrews.
Pedro completed his Masters project (on Bayesian state space approaches) and one of his DTC projects (on stochastic stem cell dynamics) in the group.
Harriet studied Biology at Oxford Brookes University before joining Oxford University in September 2014.
Chris studied the impact that modifications of trophic interactions by other populations can have upon food web dynamics through theoretical and experimental approaches.
Corentin studied Biology at Agrocampus Ouest Rennes, France, and is in the final year of his MSc in Ecology Modelling.
After completing an undergraduate degree in Integrative Biology and a MSc degree at the University of Tours (France), I decided to steer my studies towards the theoretical and mathematical approaches in biology by enrolling in a MSc degree program in Ecological Modelling at the University of Rennes (France).
Japke is studying for a masters degree in Biology at the university of Leiden, the Netherlands.
With an undergraduate degree in Chemistry with Maths and a Masters in Conservation & Biodiversity from UCL and the University of Exeter, respectively, Claire has a strong background in both maths and ecology.
Jody received her B.A. in mathematics from the University of Manitoba, Canada.
Current regulatory frameworks for assessing environmental releases of genetically modified insects (and other GM organisms, GMOs) place a strong emphasis on evaluating risks in isolation to any consideration of possible benefits.
Nayara is interested in understanding marine ecological diversity distribution, considering reef fish as models.
Imperfect mimicry in British hoverflies provides an opportunity to investigate aspects of reliable signalling and community structure.
Anticipating critical transitions in dynamical systems is a difficult problem that has seen a number of developments in recent years.
Metapopulation ecology has developed to explain the population dynamics that occur in spatially structured landscapes.
