I am Abdel Halloway, a graduate student of ecology and evolution at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My focus is the mapping the interface of ecology and evolution, particularly biodiversity and the structure of ecological communities, through the use of theory and mathematics. My main method of choice is game-theoretic eco-evolutionary framework called G-functions. Under previous work, I have used distributional data to see how adaptations affect the biogeography and distribution of three evolutionarily-convergent nectarivorous families: hawkmoths (Sphingidae), hummingbirds (Trochilidae), and sunbirds (Nectariniidae).
This website contains a more in depth discussion of my research, a list of all publications and presentations, a host of links that I find relevant, and a full CV.
I wish to thank the NSF and UIC for funding my graduate studies and allowing me to do this research.
