the computational ecology research group

We use thinking-boxes and lots of numbers to learn about where living things live, what they eat, what happens when their home changes, and why they get sick.

We work on how complex ecological systems function, change, and evolve. We approach these questions using simulations, mathematics, and machine learning.

We have a specific interest in ecological networks, biogeography, viral ecology, and epidemics.

We believe in open science, in data-driven ecological synthesis, and in turning curiosity-driven research into actionable science.
