As an undergraduate, Wheaton majored in Chemical Engineering and Mathematics at Iowa State University and was an undergraduate researcher under Dr. Jacqueline Shanks in synthetic biology. Following this, he joined the Systems and Synthetic Biology Laboratory, advised by Dr. Rajib Saha, at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln (UNL) and graduated with a doctorate in 2021. Areas of research included creating optimization-based tools for both Genome-Scale Models of Metabolism and synthetic biology. At UNL, he was a 2017 fellow for the Science Outside the Laboratory program in Washington D.C., a 2020 fellow of the Preparing Future Faculty program at UNL, and received a graduate minor in College STEM Education. In 2021, he became a postdoctoral scholar, advised by Dr. Costas Maranas at the Pennsylvania State University. As a postdoctoral scholar, his research focuses on systems biology tools for synthetic biology applications and on kinetic models of metabolism.
