My PhD/Project title is "Modelling Heterogeneous Host and Pest Populations for UK Forest – coinfections and host variability". I am currently researching Ash Dieback in the UK and designing a model to represent the spread of disease. I am a third year PhD student based at the University of Strathclyde. My work is in collaboration with BioSS and UKCEH. My supervisors are Prof Adam Kleczkowski, Dr Itamar Megiddo, Prof Glenn Marion and Dr Stephen Cavers.
