Alex is a PhD student in physics at the University of Arizona. After getting his MSc in Nuclear Physics, Alex transitioned into studying resource distribution networks and is currently investigating the branching architectures of trees and the mammalian cardiovascular and respiratory systems. His aim is to incorporate asymmetric branching geometries into current network models to examine their effects on allometric relationships. Alex is excited at the prospect of meeting potential collaborators and companions this summer, as well as exploring the New Mexico backcountry.
