I am a lecturer and research fellow at the University of Queensland with joint appointments in the Centre for Applications in Natural Resource Mathematics (CARM) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED). Mathematical tools unify my research across several diverse topics in environmental science. I am especially interested in (1) understanding the dynamics of social-ecological systems and (2) evaluating the efficacy of quantitative approaches to natural resource management.

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.
