Under the advisement of Martin Wojciechowski, with the help of committee members Lucas Majure, Shannon Fehlberg, Fabio Albuquerque and Jon Rebman. Breslin pursued research regarding the molecular phylogenetics, ancestral biogeography, climate change impacts on habitat suitability and population viability of the Mammillaria and Cochemiea (Cactaceae) of Baja California and adjacent regions.
