Peter Jagers

Professor at Department of Mathematical Sciences, Applied Mathematics and Statistics

Peter Jagers's research embraces population dynamics, point processes, and statistical inference, with an emphasis on the first. Presently he works on populations where reproduction tends to be large in small populations, but small in those large, and on populations where mutations may introduce fitter individuals and coexisting morphs. Another theme of his is the time and path to extinction of endangered populations.PJ is a fellow of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Royal Gothenburg Society, and various international societies. He holds an honorary doctorate with the Bulgarian Academy of Science.
