About My Work

My doctoral work at Virginia Tech was on the stability of systems with cyclic predator/prey interactions (think Rock-Paper-Scissors). As well as an attempt to tie ecological cyclic models to ones that looks more like game theory.

I am currently a post-doctoral associate working with Professor J Woods Halley on models of prebiotic evolution. We have explored the effects of introducing spatial degrees of freedom as well as bond energy to the model.
