My PhD was focused on theoretical population genetics. We studied models from the field of evolutionary genetics, with a focus on non-equilibrium dynamics. The three main behaviours exhibited by the systems we were interested in were: heteroclinic cycles, heteroclinic networks and the chaotic dynamics nearby such networks. We studied these systems using a combination of analytic and numerical techniques. The analytic techniques included exploiting a separation of timescales, allowing us to arrive at a closed-form approximation of a quasi-linkage equilbrium manifold in the classic two-locus two-allele model.

After completing my PhD at RHUL in 2019, I have since begun a postdoc at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases, where I have been working on the modelling response to COVID.
