Professor Stephen Simpson is Academic Director of the Charles Perkins Centre and Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney. With colleague David Raubenheimer, he developed the integrative Geometric modelling framework for nutrition, which was devised using insects but has been applied to a wide range of organisms. In addition his research on locusts has linked chemical events in the brains of individual insects to landscape-scale mass migration.
