C-203 Plant Science
My research interests focus on broad translational impacts for international agriculture and development. This interest arose in part from my personal experience in a family of agricultural field of California and a U.S. Borlaug fellowship in Global Food Security where I worked on a USAID Horticulture Project in Bangladesh and Taiwan. I’m currently investigating novel mechanism of resistance using Xanthomonas spp. and rice as my model system. I am passionate about agriculture, plant diseases, and STEM education.

I’m a native from Santa Fe, Argentina and my educational background include an B.S. from Arizona State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Florida. My main area of interest is plant molecular biology and cell development focusing mostly in cereal crops. Currently, I’m working on an NSF funded project aimed to improve rice disease resistance response utilizing genome editing technology to analyze transcriptional activation of disease resistance QTLs

I’m originally from California, although I went to undergrad in Portland, OR (Reed College, 2007) and to graduate school in Vancouver, BC (University of British Columbia, 2015). The overall goal of my research is to understand the proximate causes and ultimate drivers of trait variation. This understanding can accelerate genetic agricultural improvement and help us predict how species will respond to changing environments, and provides insight into how the diverse species and traits we observe today evolved. I also enjoy hiking, reading, and hanging out with my dog. Check out www.brookmoyers.com for more!
C-205B Plant Science
My research focuses on evolutionary ecology and invasion biology. I combine experimental, genomic, and ancient DNA approaches to investigate plant evolutionary genetics, particularly rapid adaptation to environmental change and the evolution of ecologically important traits. For more information, see http://www.kathryngturner.com/. I also blog about invasion biology and ethnobotany at http://www.alienplantation.com/.
