DR DEXIECUO AI
Dexiecuo studies: metacommunity dynamics; similarities in community composition and species-sorting. Her field work focuses on gap disturbances and community similarity in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.
PROFESSOR CHENGJIN CHU
Chengjin's research interests include: the balance of niche and neutral processes as drivers in shaping the community structure; positive interactions among plants in alpine meadow communities; positive interactions and population dynamics; the application of Bayesian inference in ecology; the spatial structure and species coexistence.
DR ROBIN HANKIN
Robin is a computational statistician with interests including theoretical ecology, multivariate Gaussian Processes, and computational combinatorics. Based at Auckland University of Technology, he is Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Sciences and has worked at various UK universities. He is also a regular contributer to the R programming language.
DR JOE HOFFMAN
Joe is an evolutionary geneticist with broad interests in the population genetics of wild animals. His research combines state of the art genomic approaches with highly detailed observational and experimental data from natural populations to understand the genetic basis of fitness variation and how this may feed into responses to climate change.
DR FLORIAN MENZEL
Florian's research is centered around interactions between ant species, the chemical signals involved, and their effect on community structure and ecosystem functioning. The taxonomic focus of his group is on tropical and temperate ant communities, and interactions of ants with other ants, spiders and aphids.
