I combine food web modelling and Bayesian statistics to quantify uncertainty in predictions. I am working with the allometric diet breadth model (ADBM) which predicts food web structure, and investigating how the composition and the quantity of different types of food web data affect the model (ADBM)'s predictions. I come from a mathematical background as my bachelors and masters degree was in Mathematics from IISER Kolkata, India. Broadly, I am interested in mathematical modelling and food webs.
In my Master studies, I worked with Rosenzweig-MacArthur model where I looked at how the dispersal structure of an ecological network influences the persistence of species. You can have more information about it here.
Being a modeller who works most of the time writing scripts in front of the computer, I do go out for hikes in the Swiss mountains.
