Andrew D. Letten

Andrew is a population biologist in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Queensland, Australia. A broad goal of his research is to understand the effect of environmental variability on the stability of ecological communities. At the same time, in order to deliver on this broader goal, he is working to scale up understanding from simple tractable systems to the more complex dynamics of real world-systems.

Before joining UQ, he was a Marie Curie fellow working with Jonathan Levine and Alex Hall at ETH Zurich (2018-2020), a postdoctoral fellow in Daniel Stouffer’s lab at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand (2017-2018), and a CEHG (Centre for Computational, Evolutionary and Human Genomics) postdoctoral fellow in Tad Fukami’s lab at Stanford University, USA (2015-2017). Prior to that he did a PhD (2011-2015) with David Keith in the Centre for Ecosystem Science at UNSW Australia; a Masters of Environmental Science and Law at the University of Sydney, Australia (2011); and a BSc (Hons) Ecology with Jeremy Midgley and Tony Verboom at the University of Cape Town, South Africa (2002-2005).
