Current Research Interests

Modelling Microbial Communities

I am interested in the dynamic modelling (based on ordinary differential equations) of microbial communities in the human colon. Particularly in modelling the emergent dynamics of these complex systems (more details here). I am also working on modelling methane production in the rumen using the same modelling techniques and supervising a PhD student, Salvatore Galgano who is applying the model to pig digestion.


Some presentations on programming in R:


Modelling Crop Pathogens

I have been involved with projects on modelling potato cyst nematodes (PCN) and rice pests (LEGATO project).
