I received my PhD in mathematics from the University of British Columbia and my BSc in mathematics and physics from the University of Toronto.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow at Queen’s University and an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Memorial University of Newfoundland. During my time at Laurier, I have also been a visiting professor at the Institut für Mathematik, Universität Wien, Austria and a fellow at the Collegium Budapest, Hungary.
My research emphasizes the theory of evolutionary games and its applications to models in biology and economics. These models can be used to predict the behaviour of individuals in biological populations under the influence of selection as well as the behaviour of humans in conflict situations that can be expressed as noncooperative games. Currently, I am investigating how evolutionary dynamics can be applied to extensive form games, to coevolutionary models in biology, to games with a continuous strategy space and to models of habitat selection. My research also involves game experiments, especially the effect of punishment and/or rewards on cooperation in social dilemmas.
I have supervised many undergraduate and graduate students as well as several postdoctoral researchers interested in applied mathematics. I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of game theory and dynamical systems. Contact me for more information.
