I am an ARC DECRA fellow in mathematics at the University of Queensland, affiliated with the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science (CBCS), and the Centre for Marine Science (CMS). Mathematical tools unify my research across several diverse topics in theoretical ecology, biodiversity conservation, and natural resource management. I am especially interested in research related to overexploitation and sustainable harvest of biological populations, from fisheries management to illegal wildlife trade.

I completed my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at Cornell University, advised by Stephen Ellner, where I worked on the optimal management of invasive species, agricultural pests, and fisheries.
