Before joining the awesome Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Loyola University Chicago, Dr. Balderama first traveled across the country for postdoctoral study with Dr. Gardner and Dr. Reich in the Department of Forestry & Environmental Resources at NC State University. His current research involves statistical methods and applications in the ecological, biological, and environmental sciences, including work with the Marine-life Data Analysis Team (MDAT) on the mapping of sea bird distributions along the Atlantic coast, a project supported by a grant from the Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC).
