Hi, my name is Elizabeth LaRue (Liz). I received my PhD in the Department of Biological Sciences at Purdue University with Nancy Emery and Mark Christie. For my dissertation, I studied dispersal trait variation in a coastal plant and explored how genetic variation in dispersal could impact how species respond to climate change. I used a combination of quantitative genetics, field experiments, spatial analyses, and ecological modeling.
I’m a postdoc in the lab of Brady Hardiman 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.
