About me

Chris
I have been a Reader of applied mathematics at the University of Glasgow since September 2003. I currently hold a Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship. I am an associate member of the Institute for Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine and a member of the 'Boyd Orr Centre for Population and Ecosystem Health'. Prior to this I was a PIMS Post Doctoral Fellow under the supervision of Mark Lewis at the University of Alberta (2001-2003). I completed my PhD (1998-2001) in Mathematical Biology at Heriot-Watt University supervised by Jonathan Sherratt .

My research interests lie in the field of Mathematical Biology. I am particularly interested in host-parasite and host-pathogen systems and how environmental variations (e.g. in host environment, in temperature, or spatial heterogeneity) impact on these interactions.

Postdoc position:

We are currently seeking applications for a 2.5+yr postdoc position to model the infection dynamics of human and animal African trypanosomiasis
