  • Role
    Scientist Mentor: I will mentor teams of students online

  • Research Interests (300 words)
    Did you know that plants and insects are constantly at war? I am interested in how insect herbivores cause plants to evolve different kinds of defenses in order to stop the insects from eating them. Plants have many ways of defending themselves, including physical barriers like thorns, and toxic and bad-tasting chemicals.
