Chris is a mathematical ecologist and outdoor enthusiast.
In Chris’ research he uses mathematical models and theory to uncover complex ecological dynamics including the influences of human disturbances on ecosystems. In particular, Chris focuses on the short term, ecologically relevant response to perturbations. The theoretical work that Chris does gives a unique perspective on assessing risks and predicting potential outcomes of certain ecological disturbances.
Chris received his PhD in applied math from the University of Alberta and is a lifelong skier and avid outdoor enthusiast. He hopes to see a future where his kids are able to enjoy climbing, biking, camping and skiing as he does.
