Research interests

I am currently working on size-spectrum models of marine ecosystems with applications to fisheries policy ....

My background is in Quantum Field Theory, String Theory, Integrable Systems and Quantum Groups. My current research is transferring some of the methods of these fields to theoretical ecology and mathematical biology.

I also have a wider interest in stochastic processes and complex networks.
