I am Dustin Mayfield-Jones, a plant scientist interested in using systems biology for a more sustainable agriculture. This is my personal website. My interests include automation, algorithms, and the digitization of everyday devices. My background is in systematics and evolutionary biology.
I am currently a graduate student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
