Postdoctoral Research: Environmental Science Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, 19XX-present (research adviser: Dr. Stephen H. Smith).
  • Development of quantitative theory of hierarchical structure in ecological systems.
  • Analysis of how ecological communities reflect environmental heterogeneity at different scales.
  • Numerical study of foraging behavior with short and long range movement in heterogeneous environments.
Doctoral Research: Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, 19XX-19XX, (research adviser: Dr. James Advisername).
  • Field study of the impact of avian predation on Anolie lizards in the eastern Caribbean documents the importance of differences in spatial scale between prey and predators.
  • Theoretical analysis of spatial scale and environmental heterogeneity in models of predator-prey communities.
  • Analytical and numerical works show how species interactions can sharpen underlying environmental patterns and how heterogeneous environments can stabilize predator and prey populations.
Undergraduate Honors Research: Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Cell Biology, Northwestern University, 19XX-19XX (research adviser: Dr. Peter T. Williams)
  • Investigation of primary events of bacterial photosynthesis.
  • Isolation and spectral analysis of photosynthetic reaction centers.

  • Theoretical and field study of ecological communities.
  • The roles that spatial patterns and processes play in shaping communities.
  • How populations and processes that act on different spatiotemporal scales affect the behavior of ecological systems.
  • Influences of disturbance size and frequency on landscape structure.
