Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Peter Pellitier

Peter joined the lab in 2020 after completing his PhD at the University of Michigan with Dr Don Zak, he also completed a MS in Post-Secondary Science Education while at Michigan. He is broadly interested in the functional biogeography of fungal communities, determinants of fungal community assembly and the role of symbiotic fungi in plant response to climate change. Peter bridges fungal genetics and ecosystem ecology using metagenomic approaches, and also employs large scale field surveys in the tropics and boreal forest to address fungal community response to global change. He also has a passion for applying diverse approaches to the instruction of ecology. Email: ptpell AT
