Eric S. Boyd
Eric S. Boyd received his Ph.D. degree in microbiology from Montana State University, Mont, USA, in 2007. Since this time, Boyd has focused much of his research attention toward understanding the role of environment in both shaping and constraining the diversification of life. This research focus has led to the development and application of a number of new evolutionary ecology tools for mapping the distribution of biological information (genetic diversity, abundance, target activites) on geochemical and energetic landscapes. He is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Montana State University, Mon, USA. His areas of expertise include molecular evolution and ecology, physiology, and metagenomics. In particular, Boyd's studies focus on single carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen metabolism.
