PhD Candidate, Department of Biology, UNC-CH
Bryan is investigates the ecology and evolution of island plants, with particular emphasis on the interactions between native and invasive species. One of the goals of his research is to improve our understanding of the threats that invasive species pose to native biodiversity in order to aid the conservation of the unique organisms found on islands such as the Galápagos. Bryan is also passionate about spreading environmental awareness, teaching subjects of ecology and evolution, and training the next generation of scientists and conservationists. As such, he is always looking for new education and outreach opportunities. Ultimately, he hopes to pursue his passion for research and education as a professor.
Bryan’s research is funded by the US Fulbright Student Program, the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Alma Holland Beers Scholarship, the W.C. Coker Fellowship, and the Mrs. Louise Coker Fellowship
