Current Lab Members

Brendan Carson
PhD Student

I came to Tufts after completing an MS in Entomology at Michigan State University and then working as a teacher and researcher at Loyola University Chicago. While working towards a PhD in the biology department, I have become fascinated with how spatial variation in plant chemistry can cascade up to influence trophic interactions. I am currently studying Baltimore checkerspot butterflies, a viral pathogen called JcDNV, and english plantain to learn more about how spatial heterogeneity can influence population dynamics.
Gabriela Garcia
PhD Student

Gabriela is interested in the effects of climate on coffee as a socioagricultural system.
Eric Scott
PhD Student

Eric is a PhD student studying the effects of herbivory on defense and flavor chemistry in tea (Camellia sinensis) in the context of climate change.
