Alex Zubilewich

Since sparking an interest in plant physiology during Ingo's Bio312 plant physiology course, Alex has been in a strong contributor to our lab for the past year, first helping Christine to develop a solid cold hardiness test with growth chamber seedlings, then taking that expertise into the field at Koffler. She's a field-hardy biologist who even took measurements at the snowy field site during mid-December! This year she's working with Kayla on the opposite end of the season and temperature spectrum, measuring changes in photosynthesis and water potential in response to a two-week heatwave.
