Dr. Heather J. Lynch is an Associate Professor of Ecology & Evolution at Stony Brook University. Prior to Stony Brook, Dr. Lynch was an Adjunct Professor of Applied Math and Statistics at UC Santa Cruz and a Research Scientist in the Biology Department at the University Maryland. Dr. Lynch received her A.B. in Physics from Princeton University in 2000, an A.M. in Physics from Harvard University in 2004, and a Ph.D. in Organismal and Evolutionary Biology from Harvard University in 2006. Dr. Lynch's research is focused on spatial population dynamics of Antarctic penguins, with a particular focus on statistical and mathematical models to integrate patchy time series with remote sensing imagery. These data will allow Dr. Lynch and colleagues to develop mathematical models to explore how coloniality constrains the colonization and extinction of individual habitat patches and, ultimately, the metapopulation dynamics of colonial seabirds.
