Scott J. Denholm
Mathematics PhD Student
Welcome to my home page.
I am currently a 3rd year mathematics PhD student being supervised by Dr Rachel Norman (Mathematics, Stirling), Dr Andy Hoyle (Mathematics, Stirling), Dr Andy Shinn (Aquaculture, Stirling) and Dr Nick Taylor (Cefas, Weymouth).
My research is focused on using mathematical modelling techniques to study the long-term impact of the macroparasite Gyrodactylus salaris on UK Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) populations. For more information click here
Funding is provided by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) via the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (Cefas)
