I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Portsmouth. I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2004 from the University of Naples Federico II (Italy).
I held postdoctoral positions at the University of Naples and at the University of Durham. Following these, I worked for five years as Mathematical Modeller at Rothamsted Research (UK).
I am a member of the Nonlinear and Complex Systems Research Group and my research interests involve nonlinear differential equations, applied dynamical systems, biostatistics and mathematical biology.
- Population dynamics
- Mathematical epidemiology
- Theoretical ecology
- Nonlinear dynamics, stability properties in dynamical systems
- Medical statistics
- Monte Carlo based calibration and uncertainty analysis
- Network-based analysis of biological data
