Justin Yeakel

Assistant Professor
Science and Engineering 1 Building, Room 288
PhD, 2012 - University of California, Santa Cruz
BS, 2004 - Kent State University
Research Interests: 

Dr. Yeakel is generally interested in the physical and biological constraints that shape trophic interactions, and how changes in these interactions impact community dynamics over both ecological and evolutionary time. He employs both theoretical as well as empirical approaches to address many different aspects of problems that fall within this central focus, including but not limited to:

  • Nonlinear dynamics
  • Stochastic processes
  • Dynamic programming
  • Stable isotopes
  • Historical records
  • Paleontological data
