Bio:  I am a first year student under Dr. Rocha pursuing a Masters degree. I have shadowed his work at Toolik Field Station for two field seasons and was captured by the isolation and intensity offered by the northern Alaskan ecosystem. I am keen on understanding more about the phenology of arctic plants. In particular, I aim to consider the environmental drivers of senescence – the death of plant cells initiated by changing seasons.
