Dr. Camille Delavaux
Camille is an ecologist studying plant-microbial interactions in a changing world. Broadly, her research focuses on these interactions and their consequences for biogeography, diversity and invasion. Camille’s research combines molecular biology, controlled experiments, field ecology, big data analysis and modeling to answer related questions. Her work has shown that microbial mutualists mediate plant biogeography and diversity, revealed anthropogenic impacts on plants and plant-associated microbes, and substantially advanced bioinformatics tools to identify the full diversity of plant-associated mutualists. Ultimately, she is motivated by how her research may inform conservation and restoration of degraded systems.
