Simulations of the genetic basis of evolution.
Paula grew up in southern California before deciding to find out what rain was, completing a Biology B.S. and Art History minor at the University of Washington; and doing research at Friday Harbor Labs. Now back in Irvine, she is a PhD student studying the patterns of genetics in populations and how they relate to evolution, all through computer-generated data! She enjoys marine invertebrates, art history and making art, and the three deserts of California.
