Focus: Naiad rearing, Odonata color evolution
Kyle is a senior undergraduate in bioinformatics graduating in April 2019. He has spent the last two years working on different projects in the lab, starting with raising dragonfly naiads. Kyle is now working on the color diversification within Odonata, trying to find a correlation between the number of opsins (the genes coding for the visual system) and the color diversification. Kyle is particularly interested in genetics, evolution, and machine learning. He hopes to continue on to graduate school studying in this field of study.
Interests: outside of school he enjoy CrossFit and the outdoors
