Host Dr. Diane Dike was thankful to find Dr. Lee Altenberg through his website about 10 years ago. They enjoyed a phone call where Diane expressed her appreciation for his website full of helpful information. Over the years it has served as a guide and Diane has posted his informative information on the CVO website and in numereous Facebook posts. It is with great joy that she welcomes him to the show today! Dr. Altenberg is a mathematical population biologist researching the theory of evolution. He was born and raised in California, receiving his A.B. in Genetics from UC Berkeley, and his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University. He was at Duke University teaching evolutionary computation when his dad moved in with him and was hospitalized with heart failure. To give his father the best quality of life with his decades-old cryoglobulinemia condition, they moved to Maui in 1994 where he lived another 11 years, during which time Dr. Altenberg served as Associate Professor in Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Hawaii. Dr. Altenberg is Associate Editor of the Journal BioSystems.
