After a first career as a software engineer, Ben Haller switched to biology, obtaining his B.S. degree in Biology (Conservation/Organismal) from San Jose State University in May 2009. He is currently a second-year Ph.D. student at McGill University. For his thesis project titled “Weaving an Eco-Evolutionary Tapestry: Gene Flow, Local Adaptation, and Speciation” he uses individual-based simulations of evolutionary processes to understand how dispersal and gene flow affect the local adaptation of populations, and how species emerge from these interactions between evolution and ecology.
