Tim Coulson carried out his PhD at Imperial College, London, before conducting post-docs at the Institute of Zoology, London, and the University of Cambridge. He returned to Imperial as a senior lecturer in 2004 and was made Professor of Population Biology four years later. He moved to Oxford as Professor of Zoology in January 2013.
Tim’s research focuses on understand how adding or removing predators to systems impacts the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of the affected ecosystem. He develops novel theory, that he then tests with data collected in the field, and from experiments.
