Katherine is a doctoral candidate at Michigan State University, dual-advised by Dr. Richard Kobe and Dr. Sarah McCarthy-Neumann. She is finishing a dual-Ph.D. in the Department of Forestry and the Program in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior. For her dissertation, she is investigating how light availability and soil-borne microbes mediate tree seedling defense and recovery traits, and how those traits then mediate tree seedling survival.
