I am a graduate student in the Richardson Lab in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology (OEB) at Harvard University.
I am currently studying nonstructural carbon reserve dynamics in forest trees. How big are these reserves, how are they allocated within a tree, and how can they help us predict the ability of trees to cope with stress factors ranging from pests to climate change?
In my spare time, I like yogaing, cooking, sewing, and spending time outdoors with my partner Jeff, preferably at the beach or in the mountains. I also enjoy science education and outreach.
