Overview

I studied biology at the Urals' State University (Russia) where I specialised in plant ecology. After graduating I turned to mathematical modelling of ecological processes and did a PhD in theoretical ecology at Royal Holloway, University of London. My study was originally centered around modelling aphid population dynamics but I also got very interested in aphid movement when it appeared that aphid walking behaviour had a important effect on population dynamics. Now I extended my research to other groups of animals including cattle and wild grazers.

I currently work with Maydencroft Farm and Boltons Park Farm (Royal Veterinary College) in Hertfordshire to study cattle grazing behaviour using GPS tracking.

My other interests are in statistical modelling (in particular, analysis of movement data) and plant diversity in meadows.
