Haw Chuan Lim
- Assistant Professor
PhD, Evolutionary Biology, Louisiana State University (2010)
Lim uses evolutionary genomics methods to study how geography, ecology and history interact to create, maintain, and distribute biological diversity at different spatio-temporal scales. I aim to use integrative approaches that transcends disciplinary boundaries because biological processes themselves are not compartmentalized.
Currently works with:
- Department of Biology
- Smithsonian Institution
- Micro-Biome Analysis Center
Lim teaches classes in biostatistics, bioinformatics and population genetics.
