Dr. Joseph Stover joined the Lyon College faculty in 2013. He earned a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics from the University of Texas in Austin, and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Arizona in Tucson, and performed postdoctoral research at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand and the University of California in Santa Barbara, CA.

Theoretical ecology is his primary area of research interest, which involves using mathematical models to study biological population dynamics. His current research projects include examining how heterogeneity in phenotypic traits, such as an individual organism's ability to survive and reproduce, impacts the overall population.
