Haozhe Zhang and Robert Sinclair
Haozhe Zhang, a PhD student now at Iowa State University, and OIST Professor Robert Sinclair investigated the spatial patterns of Namibian fairy circles and skin cells when Zhang was a research intern at OIST in 2013. Sinclair had wondered if the circles and cells were at all related after seeing a presentation on fairy circles and reading a paper about the distribution of skin cell neighbors.
