Graduate Student

Karrin Tennant

Karrin recently completed a B.S. in Environmental Biology at the University of Utah. As an undergraduate student, she worked in the lab of Dr. Bryn Dentinger studying drivers of local adaptation in a mycorrhizal fungi species. She also conducted research for her honors thesis with Dr. William Anderegg examining nighttime water loss in trees. As an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, Karrin plans to incorporate plant ecophysiology and microbial ecology into her Ph.D. research in the Peay lab. She is especially interested in using trait-based approaches to study how diverse microbial communities influence tree health and drought resilience.
