Chris Kempes


I am a scientist working at the intersection of physics, biology, and the earth sciences. Using mathematical and computational techniques I study how simple theoretical principles inform a variety of phenomena ranging from major evolutionary life-history transitions, to the biogeography of plant traits, to the organization of bacterial communities. I am particularly interested in biological architecture as a mediator between physiology and the local environment.
