Anna Vinton

Scientist in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

My fascination with the natural world began in childhood, marvelling at diverse organisms, from snails to deer. This curiosity led me to the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I pursued degrees in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Mathematics. My doctoral journey at Yale University was underpinned by my goal to harness mathematical modelling to bridge the gaps in our comprehension of nature’s complexities.

Currently, I work to develop eco-evolutionary models to understand environmental impacts on population dynamics. I do this using a variety of systems, employing fruit flies as a model system in the lab as part of my NSF fellowship at the University of Oxford and using coral reefs through my Presidential Sustainability Fellowship at the University of Southern California.
