Recent Former Lab Members


Eric Sibbernsen - Eric was an undergraduate who worked in the laboratory from 2005 until 2010.  Eric worked on a variety of projects and published 2 papers in peer-reviewed journals based on his work.  Eric is now in medical school at the University of Utah.


Jevin West - Jevin completed his M.S. in our laboratory in 2004, studying stomatal networks.  He moved on to a Ph.D. program at the University of Washington, studying information theory in biology.  He is currently a postdoctoral student at University of Washington studying Eigenfactors and scientific literature.  During his time at USU Jevin was known for his prowess at tennis, and had the good sense not to beat his faculty mentor too badly.


Susanna Messinger - Susanna completed her M.S. in our laboratory in 2004 studying interactions among stomata and their role in producing stomatal patches.  She is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan studying emergent patterns at the community level.  


Joe Shope - Joe was a technician in the laboratory from 2001 until 2009, when he left the lab for the dark side and became the  IT technician for the Department of Biology.  Joe still visits the lab regularly, but only if we accidentally leave the door unlocked.  


Tom Buckley - Tom finished his Ph.D. in 1999, studying the role of communication among stomata in producing heterogeneous (patchy) stomatal conductance.   After a several postdocs in the U.S. and Australia, Tom accepted an assistant professor position at Sonoma State University.
