I am a first year PhD student in the lab of Professor Lawren Sack in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California Los Angeles.
Broadly speaking, my research interests fall into the following categories:
Prior to UCLA, I worked with Dr. Leander DL Anderegg, Melissa E Lacey, Dr. Janneke Hille Ris Lambers, and Dr. Liz Van Volkenburgh elucidating the coordinated morphological, anatomical, and functional changes that Populus tremuloides (Trembling Aspen) leaves undergo when acclimating to environmental stressors: low-water versus low-light availability.
If you want to collaborate or simply say hi feel free to send me an email!
