I am a theoretical ecologist whose research interests lie in using mathematical modelling techniques to study the functioning of natural systems and how they respond to perturbations. I specialize in modelling the dynamics of networks of species interactions, such as pollination and seed-dispersal networks. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Statistics in Ecology, Environment and Conservation (SEEC), at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. My current research focuses on studying the effects of climate change on ecological networks. Prior to joining SEEC, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Mathematical Biosciences hub at the University of Stellenbosch. I completed my PhD in mathematical ecology in 2016 at the same university.
