Research Interest:
My interests revolve around population and evolutionary biology. In particular, I am interested in modeling population processes and applying those models to real-world situations. Most of my work treats populations in the traditional sense as collections of individual organisms, but I have recently been using population-biology tools to model populations of roots in forest soils
