Quantitative Ecology Lab
Our overall goal is to study the processes governing the evolution and maintenance of individual variability within populations. We structure our research on life history theory to address questions regarding population dynamics through the quantification of population fitness and selection gradients on survival and reproduction.
We focus our methods on structured population models and use advanced theoretical biology, statistical modeling, and computational tools to enhance theories in Ecology and Evolutionary Demography.
We are a CSULB research lab holding partnerships with several research and educational groups. We collaborate with the Caribbean Primate Research Center (CPRC) at the University of Puerto Rico and with the Salamander Population and Adaptation Research Collaboration Network (SPARCNet). We are also a proud Latino Project Biodiversify research contributor. For information on the post-hurricane status of Cayo Santiago, please visit Project Monkey Island.
