How do competitive interactions shape the ecology, population dynamics, and traits of species and communities?
Hi! My name is Daniel Falster. I am an ARC future fellow at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. I use a combination of maths, computer models, and large data sets to test fundamental ideas about the processes shaping biological communities. My current focus is on predicting the distribution of plant types found across the Australian continent from first principles, using evolutionary models. I am passionate about science, open data, reproducible research, and teaching biologists to code.
