(McKenzie) Kenzie Givens
Indiana University - USA

I am a first year PhD student in Evolution and Complex Systems at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. My current research endeavors to bridge gaps between theoretical models of speciation and empirical descriptions of gene regulation. Using dynamical models of gene networks, I study how interactions between incompatible mutations create reproductive barriers that give rise to novel species.
