Ryan Chisholm PhD
|Ryan Chisholm | I am an assistant professor at the National University of Singapore. I am interested in theoretical approaches to problems in ecology and conservation biology, with a particular focus on patterns of biodiversity, ecosystem function, ecosystem services and alien invasive species. I am also a research associate at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.|
MA in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (2007)
BSc (Hons.) in Mathematics and Statistics (Hons. in Botany) (2001)
BA in German (2001)
