Christina is a plant ecologist interested in a wide range of topics related to plants, including their biology and interactions with below-ground micro organisms in native and novel environments. She uses field observations, combined with experimental manipulations and molecular tools to explore questions pertaining plant-microbe
interactions in natural ecosystems.

Pawel is an ecologist with experience in plant ecophysiology, plant invasion, and restoration ecology. He is currently involved in a project that examines the susceptibility of local wetlands to invasion by large aquatic macrophytes, such as Phragmites australis, but also understanding how local plant communities respond to                                                               changing climatic and edaphic conditions. Prior to this,                                                               Pawel completed his PhD dissertation on restoring                                                                       threatened ecological community using topsoil transfer at                                                           Murdoch University (Western Australia).


Graduate Students

Carolyn Schroeder, PhD student
Email: cschroeder[at]tulane.edu

Carolyn is interested in a broad spectrum of plant ecology subjects. At Tulane, Carolyn will be studying plant-microbial interactions in saline, brackish, and fresh water marshes in the Mississippi Delta. She is also interested in using GIS and remote sensing methods to investigate how native and invasive plants respond to                                                                 disturbance.

William Wilber, PhD student
Email: wwilber[at]tulane.edu

William is interested in how plant communities organize themselves in space and time in response to community interactions and abiotic inputs. His research will investigate these topics in systems throughout coastal Louisiana, especially as they relate to questions relevant to the conservation and restoration of wetlands. He is                                                                  looking forward to spending the next five years living in                                                              and learning about our local ecosystems.

Leanne Norden, 4+1 masters student
Email: lnorden[at]tulane.edu

Leanne is a in the 4+1 Undergraduate and Master’s program with the Tulane Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department. She is passionate about ecology and conservation as well as all living things! While working with the Farrer Lab, she will investigate the effects of microbial endophytes on various growth parameters for local marsh species.

 


Undergrads

Nelle Kulick
Email: dkulick1[at]tulane.edu

Nelle is an Environmental Biology major interested in symbioses, plant ecology, community dynamics, and microbiology. Her research will investigate the effects of environmental stressors on plant-microbe interactions in brackish and fresh water marshes with implications for predicting future invasive spread in the Gulf region.
