It is with great pleasure that the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics
Society presents the 2018 Cecil Graham Doctoral Dissertation Award to David 
McLeod.

Dr. McLeod's thesis is a beautiful example of applied mathematics, applying 
sophisticated mathematical ideas to questions of fundamental interest to 
evolutionary biologists, relating to infectious diseases and mating systems, 
including sexual selection and conflict, and also addressing social 
interactions such as cooperation, altruism and spite, for example showing how 
small population size can drive the emergence of such behaviour.
