Past NIMBioS Postdoctoral Fellow
Dates: June 2015 – December 1, 2016
Project Title: Novel approaches for biodiversity, multiple species distributions, and community models
Nels Johnson (Statistics, Virginia Tech, 2012) uses novel nonparametric Bayesian approaches for data reduction to develop more flexible models for addressing the impact that diversity and community structure have on ecosystem function and to better understand the biodiversity of communities across environmental gradients and traits. Upon completing his fellowship, Johnson accepted a position as a mathematical statistician with the U.S. Forest Service at the Pacific Southwest Research Station in Albany, CA.
