About the speaker
Monica Kersch-Becker is an assistant professor at the University of Alabama. Dr. Kersch-Becker’s lab research focuses on the underlying mechanisms by which chemical signals shape multi-trophic species interactions, population dynamics, and community structure of plants and arthropods. Her work integrates observational and manipulative laboratory and field experiments with analytical chemistry and rigorous quantitative analyses.
About the series
Graduate students and faculty from the ecology labs at SU have been working towards a virtual seminar series focused on greater inclusion of scientists from underrepresented backgrounds in ecology and the environmental sciences. This seminar series, in addition to showcasing current research in the field, will also provide an opportunity for the student population to interact with scientists from diverse backgrounds.
