Diana Jerome

Research interests:

I am interested in community ecology of plants. In particular I am interested in understanding how plant communities shift under climate change, through studying demography, phenology, and growth. I am also interested in plant conservation and global change.

Career history:

2018-2020 MSc in Plant Biology and Conservation from Northwestern University and the Chicago Botanic Garden
2016-2018 Conservation Research Aide at The Morton Arboretum
2012-2016, BA in Environmental Biology from Washington University in St Louis

Active research projects:

Shrub climate sensitivity across boreal, subarctic and tundra ecosystems
