People in the lab (2023)
Hannah Brazeau (PhD student): Hannah joined the lab in Winter 2021, after completing her MSc at the University of New Brunswick. She was awarded a University of Guelph Graduate Tuition Scholarship, an Ontario Graduate Scholarship, and an NSERC CGS-D. She is studying the ecological consequences of floral evolution in response to pollinator decline.
Gurleen Chana (undergraduate research assistant, undergraduate thesis student): Gurleen joined the lab in Summer 2022. For her undergraduate thesis project, she tested whether a plastic extension in floral longevity in response to pollinator decline is adaptive. Gurleen won a Young Botanist Award from the Botanical Society of America, and will be spending Summer 2023 working in the lab as a research assistant.
Jacqueline Thomson (PhD student): Jacqueline Thomson joined the. lab in Summer 2022. She is studying fungal endophytes with Jonathan Newman (who is now a VP at Wilfrid Laurier University, so Chris is acting as her co-advisor).
Amanda Whitehead (MSc student): Amanda joined the lab in Fall 2022, after completing her BSc at Trent University. She was awarded a University of Guelph Graduate Tuition Scholarship, and is studying how plant responses to pollinator decline are affected by anthropogenic changes in the abiotic environment.
