Adrian Worton is a first-year PhD student based at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen and the University of Stirling. I am primarily based at the latter where I also teach various classes in the Mathematics department. I graduated from a BSc (Honours) degree in Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Stirling in 2012.

Current research interests

PhD Studentship

My project aims to predict how changes in factors such as temperature, woodland cover and wildlife numbers across Scotland will affect tick-borne diseases, in particular Louping-ill and Lyme disease. To achieve this I will be using Geographical Information Software (GIS) to implement mathematical models I have designed.

Supervisors: Dr Lucy Gilbert (James Hutton Institute) and Professor Rachel Norman (University of Stirling).

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
