Maxwell B. Joseph
Welcome. I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree at the University of Colorado, Boulder in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with Professor Pieter Johnson. My work focuses on understanding free-living and parasitic biodiversity. My approach encompasses empirical research in the field and in the lab, synthetic and comparative approaches, and mathematical modeling with the goal of producing science that is valuable from both an academic and applied perspective.
