Ecology, Evolution, and Biodiversity major

I worked with Dr. Sudhir Kumar for about two years participating in bioinformatics— specifically, I analyzed genomic data and helped develop models/programs to better understand phylogenetics and molecular evolution. Currently, I am working with Dr. Erik Cordes and deep sea marine ecology. I will be working with environmental data, population data, and video samples to understand the speciation and conservation of corals.
