About me

I use individual-based simulation to investigate processes responsible for generating large-scale patterns of diversity in marine ecosystems. I couple oceanographic data with biological information to simulate the dispersal of marine species. I am interested in complex systems and finding common ground between computer science and conserving marine environments.

Marine Connectivity Database Subset

A new fully four-dimensional biophysical dispersal model has been developed by Geoscience Australia, that uses the parallel processing ability of the National Computational Infrastructure Facility supercomputer (http://nci.org.au/), to handle large numbers of simulated larvae, and that can als...
