    On the innovation and evolution of predatory tactics
    (bioRxiv, 2019-01-25) Gokhale CS; Wignall A
    Predator-prey systems are ubiquitous across ecological systems. Typical ecological models focus on the dynamics of predator-prey populations. Eco-evolutionary models integrate arms race or Red-Queen like dynamics. The roles of the predator and prey species are always assumed to be static. Nevertheless, sometimes predators can bite off more than they can chew. For example, predators that encounter multiple or dangerous prey types may need to develop new predatory tactics to capture prey. We explore the dynamics of predator-prey dynamics when the prey can injure or kill the predator. This common ecological scenario places pressure on the predator to develop novel predatory tactics to both capture prey and avoid counter-attack from prey. Taking a bottom-up approach, we develop the Holling function mechanistically and then implement it in a model of innovationselection dynamics inspired by economic theory. We show how an interdisciplinary approach can be used to explain the emergence of complex predatory behaviours. Notably, our study shows why predators may hunt dangerous prey even when safe prey are available. In a broader context, we demonstrate how a multidisciplinary approach combining ecology, evolution and economics improves our understanding of a complex behavioural trait.

    Māori in Engineering Podcast, Episode 9: Georgina Stokes: designing how we experience and understand spaces
    (Māori in Engineering Podcast, 2022-12-07) Stokes G; Lysaght A
    Episode 19 of The Māori in Engineering podcast is now live! A long time coming in getting episodes out, mō taku hē. So it was great to dust off the mic! Awesome to catch up with Georgina Stokes (Ngāi Tahu) - someone who is an incredible thinker in the spatial design space and inspiration to those she lectures at Toi Rauwhārangi College of Creative Arts at Massey University kei Te Whanganui a Tara. Georgina is an overall awesome wahine, pretty evident in the way she communicates so passionately with the work. Really interesting points of discussions was her mahi in whakapapa plotting to better how we experience spaces and the alignment in her studies and her Māoritanga 🤯 Available on all podcast platforms and the website Listen on Spotify here: #MāoriinEngineering

    Where are our false positives?
    (OSF Preprints, 2022-05-03) Perezgonzalez J
    In our current regime of COVID-19 testing, a question seems not to be asked: Are we inferring the best we can from our results? Or, put differently, are we testing with severity? This study thus explore the proportion of expected positives and negative cases, with an especial focus on estimating false positives in isolation and estimating false (or unknown) negatives in the remaining population. Both seems to have been chiefly ignored by Government health policy.

    Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) and COVID-19 prevalence
    (OSF Preprins, 2022-05-04) Perezgonzalez J
    The article contains a Bayesian analysis to model expected rate of positive and negative COVID-19 cases, based on Rapid Antigen Test performance and COVID-19 prevalence in New Zealand. The results suggest that the majority of approved tests were excellent in identifying negative cases but might turn out too many false positives. Recommendations for a protocol for RAT-based testing concludes the article.
