Susan Lee, Master's Student (2016)
B.Sc., Environmental Science, Binghamton University
Suzy research interests are in invasive species, biological control, and plant and insect interactions. She is working on a project comparing oak gall-former parasitoid interaction webs between the native and introduced ranges of an invasive gall-former. Outside of the lab, she is an avid backpacker, cyclist, and rock climber. She loves being outside and has spent the past few summers in Maine building new trails.
Carmela Buono, Ph.D. Student (2017)
B.S., Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources, Rutgers University, New Brunswick
After Carmela's time at Rutgers, she spent a year completing a term of service with AmeriCorps in the New Jersey Watershed Ambassador Program, where she developed a passion for outreach and promoting environmental stewardship. Carmela’s research interests include plant ecology, restoration ecology, invasive species, and how multi-trophic interactions are affected by global change. Currently, she is working on a project examining how land use change and invasive species affects animal-plant interactions in eastern deciduous forests. Outside of the lab she enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, painting, cooking, and crafting!
Dylan Jones, Ph.D. Student (2018)
B.Sc., Biology, Roanoke College; M.Sc., Biology, Montclair State University
Dylan is coming to us from Montclair State University, where he recently received his Masters of Science in Biology with a concentration in Ecology and Evolution. His research interests include, invasive ecology, anthropogenic influences on organism retention, community ecology, organismal interactions, urban ecology, and climate impacts on ecosystem stability. Dylan is starting a project examining how anthropogenic change, such as invasion, climate change, and land use change affect host-parasitoid interactions. Outside of the lab, Dylan enjoys hiking, traveling, working out, spending time with family, and learning about native flora and fauna. He is thrilled to be pursuing his Doctorate at Binghamton University!
