Biography

The goal of understanding and predicting biodiversity dynamics comes at a critical moment when human systems are disrupting those very dynamics.In his research, Andy Rominger approaches this long-standing problem with the hypothesis that general patterns in biodiversity, such as characteristic shapes of the distributions of population sizes across species and species across geographic space, emerge from a combination of the statistical mechanics of large systems and the unique non-equilibrium dynamics imparted to biological systems by their evolutionary history.Andy uses a combination of theory, open source computational methods and novel "natural experiments" in rapidly evolving ecosystems to capture statistical and evolutionary dynamics across the tree of life.
