I studied statistical (movement) ecology for my MSc, then did a theoretical PhD in eco-evolutionary ecology, postdoc on population/community dynamics. I work mainly on species interactions, community dynamics and how they relate to each other.

Diversity-Stability and the Structure of Perturbations

In his 1972 paper “Will a Large Complex System Be Stable?” [1], May challenges the idea that large communities are more stable than small ones. This was the beginning of a fundamental debate that still structures an entire research area in ecology: the diversity-stability debate [2]. The most salient strength of May’s work was to use a mathematical argument to refute an idea based on the observations that simple communities are less stable than large ones. Using the formalism of dynamical...
