I combine food web modelling with empirical data to make better predictions of 'who eats whom' in a food web. Currently, I am working with the allometric diet breadth model (ADBM) to predict food web structure. I have completed Bachelors and Masters in Mathematics from IISER Kolkata, India. Broadly, I am interested in mathematical models and food webs.
In my Master thesis, I investigated the influence of dispersal structure on the persistence of species in a metapopulation. You can have more information 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.
