Stephen is a PhD student at the University of Canterbury, researching the spread of disease in possum populations. The main goal of his research is to determine the effect that individual heterogeneity has on the spread of bovine tuberculosis by using individual based models and network theory. Prior to coming to New Zealand, Stephen obtained a Master of Mathematics from the University of Bath. He likes the unique opportunities to connect and collaborate with people, across a variety of disciplines, that comes with being part of Te Pūnaha Matatini.
