Hi, my name is Elizabeth LaRue (Liz). I’m currently a postdoc with Brady Hardiman and Songlin Fei at Purdue University in the Department of Foresty and Natural Resources. I’m studying the role of forest structure on invasive species distributions and forest ecosystem functioning with remote sensing. 

I finished my PhD with Nancy Emery and Mark Christie July 2017, where I studied dispersal evolution and ecology. I found that dispersal trait variation in a lakeshore plant varied predictably with habitat quality and amount across the Great Lakes. I also explored how genetic variation in dispersal could impact how species respond to climate change with an individual-based modeling approach.IMG_3991
