  • As of 1st April 2018, I have moved from Stirling to the University of Strathclyde, taking up a Global Talent professorship in Mathematics.
  • 2018: Centre of Expertise in Plant Health, funded by the Scottish Government, was announced on 1st February 2018; I am part of the Science Advise and Response Team;
  • 2017: As part of FOREMOD, we organised an international workshop in Edinburgh (September 2017)
  • 2016: A consortium led be FERA with Universities of York, Salford and Stirling won a Defra grant to produce a decision support tool for Defra and Forestry Commission. As part of the project we organised a number of co-design sessions with government agencies.
  • 2016: We organised a session at BIOECON
  • 2016: Ben Bumpus obtained a BSPP summer student bursary to work with Prof. Gerry Saddler from SASA and me on modelling potato diseases like blackleg.
  • 2015: I have been promoted to a Chair in Mathematics, University of Stirling.


A short biography:

Having graduated in Theoretical Physics at the Jagiellonian University in Poland in 1989, Adam has been working in the area of Mathematical Biology, applying models to study human, animal and plant diseases, soil and terrestrial biodiversity, and climate change. He also has worked on parameter estimation for ecological and epidemiological systems. After a post-doctoral post in Germany, he came to Cambridge, England, to work as a post-doctoral fellow and eventually a lecturer in Mathematical Biology. In 2007 he moved to Stirling, Scotland, advancing from a senior lecturer to a reader in 2014 and to a full professor in 2015. In April 2018 he joined the University of Strathclyde, as a Global Talent Professor in Mathematics. His group at Strathclyde is one of very few in the world working on bioeconomic models of plant and forest diseases and on pollination-pesticide risks.

Research interests:

My particular interests are in the area of mathematical modelling and statistical analysis of systems at the interface of epidemiology, socio-economics and policy:
