Dr. Amy Trowbridge, PhD

NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Biology Department, Indiana University, USA

Research Interests:

  • Chemically mediated plant-insect-microbe interactions
  • Interaction of climate and herbivory in controlling plant chemistry and herbivore population dynamics
  • Biotic and abiotic controls of above- and belowground VOCs and implications for atmospheric processes
  • Plant physiology and chemical ecology
  • Plant-atmosphere interactions
