Fanchao Song of Arkin Lab was selected to compete in Berkeley Lab “Early Career Scientist and Research SLAM”. Here is his presentation from the SLAM “I am a Bubble Player”, which was selected from a competitive field of 42 entries. This is the “3-minute-describe-your-work-in-layman-terms” challenge that Berkeley Lab is hosting for postdocs. Finalists receive coaching […]

ENIGMA’s Fangchao Song is Berkley Lab SLAM Finalist! | September 18, 2019

              ENIGMA researchers at University of Oklahoma have developed a general framework for quantitatively assessing ecological stochasticity. This general framework provides an effective and robust tool to ecologists for quantifying ecological stochasticity. This allows ENIGMA to move towards more precise quantitative understanding of ecological processes shaping subsurface communities. The […]
