Mark Stevenson


I work in the area of spatial ecology, trying to predict the movement and dispersal of organisms through their environment.

Specifcally I design ‘Geographic Profiling’ methods (a technique first developed in criminology to catch serial offenders) and apply these novel approaches to biological systems.

My work has focussed on: Invasive species, epidemiology and biological dispersal
