My research interests lie in applied dynamical systems, analysis and mathematical systems & control, particularly with a view
to the modelling, analysis and control of biological and ecological systems. These interests
lie on a spectrum from more theoretical to applications driven. Theoretical interests include model
reduction for control systems as well as exploring properties in (not necessarily controlled) dynamical
systems imparted by typically physically motivated constraints such as dissipativity and/or positivity of
state variables. The latter, more applied, interests are motivated by important contemporary societal
challenges arising in biology and ecology, where I believe that systems & control theory is ideally suited to
offer solutions. I, with others, have been developing new results in robust and adaptive control, currently
with a view to possible pest management and food security.
