# Size spectrum modelling in the ocean using systems of differential equations

**Project level:** PhD

This applied mathematics PhD involves modelling the marine ecosystem from bacteria to whales using systems of ordinary differential equations and numerical techniques to solve them. The aim is to estimate the number of fish in the oceans and how much can be harvested. The student needs a background in applied mathematics and an interest in the natural world. The project will support travel to an international conference during the PhD.
