Robin Snyder, "The role of luck in individual success"

December 9, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Clark Center Auditorium S001


Dr. Snyder's career has followed the weedy life history strategy typical of many physicists. After obtaining an undergraduate degree in physics from Oberlin College, she went on for a physics PhD from UCSB but was already beginning to drift toward ecology, choosing Roger Nisbet as her mentor.  Upon graduating, she underwent a short dispersal phase and completed a postdoc under Peter Chesson at UC Davis. She was then hired by the Biology department at Case Western Reserve University, where she remains.
