Current lab members

Post Doctoral

Mina Rostamza - Post-doctoral research associate. Mina is an agronomist by training. We're investigating tools for phenotyping plant roots, and mechanisms of self/non-self recognition in soil. We're also doing some modeling to explore the effects of different harvest and cost funcitons on the outcome of plant allocation models.


Graduate

Mariah Mobley - Mariah has been working on mechanisms of self-non/self recognition in plant-plant competition as an undergraduate researcher. She will start an M.Sc. this autumn looking at plant herbivore interactions.

Kliffi Blackstone - Kliffi is interested in mutualisms, and worked on interactions between plants and bats for her M.Sc. She will work on mycorrhizal associations.


Undergraduate

Undergraduate research is an important part of my lab. Please feel free to email me if you are interested in doing a research project for credit!

Past lab members

Post Doctoral

Paul Orlando - Post-doctoral research associate. Paul is a theoretical ecologist. We're working on plant-mycorrhizae bargaining games, and scaling up simple plant games to the level of communities.

Undergraduate

Gina Clepper - Engineering Undergraduate researcher. Gina developed models for plant resource foraging, exploring alternative harvest equations, and water uptake.

Wesley Evens - Plant Science Undergraduate researcher. Wesley worked on plant strategies for tolerating enemy attack.
