About Ben

I am an Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne’s School of Biosciences. I am a population biologist with a background in ecology and evolution, and am particularly interested in how spatial processes influence population and evolutionary dynamics.

I started my professional life as a field biologist, but have slowly morphed into a modeller. I am interested in developing models describing population and evolutionary dynamics, and applying these to real problems.

I enjoy fieldwork and data collection, but I also take pleasure in squeezing every last shred of information out of the data at hand. And when there’s not enough data at hand, I’ll explore mathematical models instead.
