ryanRyan Chisholm
Associate Professor (Office: S3-01-11)

Ryan is a theoretical ecologist with an interest in tropical forest ecology and biodiversity. He completed an undergraduate degree in Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Melbourne and a PhD in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. Current major research projects aim to understand the mechanisms responsible for large-scale patterns of tree diversity in tropical forests and to estimate extinction rates in the tropics. Download Ryan’s CV here.


Tak Fung
Senior Research Fellow

Tak constructs and uses mathematical models to investigate processes governing population dynamics in complex ecosystems. He studied Mathematics at Imperial College London as an undergraduate, before doing two PhDs at University College London and Queen’s University Belfast, on modelling the dynamics of coral reef and temperate marine shelf ecosystems. Tak is working on a range of projects including models of tropical forest dynamics and epidemiological models of dengue in Singapore. More details on Tak can be found at his personal website.
