Hello! My name is Alex Bajcz, and I am a plant ecologist specializing in the ecological and evolutionary constraints imposed on reproductive structures in flowering plants. I am particularly interested in discerning how factors like soil properties and mutualistic partnerships influence the physical and chemical traits of these structures. My skill set also includes applied statistics, programming and simulation modeling using R, and science pedagogy. Outside of academia, I am also a crossword constructor, with puzzles that have been published by The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and other outlets. Please check the other pages on this site for more information on these and other topics. Thanks for stopping by!
