I’m a postdoctoral researcher at Mississippi State University where I explore ways of using mathematics to understand nature. I have worked here since October 2021 and I am employed here until the end of 2024.

Mathematical biology is reasonably novel and useful science, dedicated towards understanding our world. Promoting mathematical biology research to all who will listen captivates much of my time. I’ve spoken about the mathematics of nature to a range of audiences from indigenous tribes in the Guiana Shield to primary school children. Previously, I was a secondary mathematics teacher and I have applied my past experiences to teach undergraduate level mathematics and engineering.

I completed my PhD in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield. I followed this by teaching and lecturing for a year in the department whilst I ran an national mathematical biology outreach project for primary students. 

I am a committee member of the Movement Ecology Special Interest group at the British Ecological Society and a member of The Wildlife Society.

I conduct my Mississippi based research remotely from the shores of Lake Michigan in North West Indiana where I live with my husband Joshua and my cat Kappa.
