My research shows that the biological structure is constrained in important ways by general variables such as the number of base pairs in a genome and the number of individuals and species in a community. I used a combination of macroecology, bioinformatics, statistics, mathematics, and advanced computing to pursue my research and published several peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts and open-source software as a result.
I was funded through a combination of fellowships and scholarships awarded by the Utah State University School of Graduate Studies, College of Science, and ...
