Chelsea N. Miller, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral researcher in the Forest Entomology Lab at the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources (Univ. of Georgia, Athens) interested in the effects of climate change and anthropogenic and natural disturbances on insect-plant interactions.
Using observational and experimental laboratory and field techniques, computational analyses, and ecological niche modeling, I address the following questions:
1. How do weather disturbances impact forest community composition, specifically the interactions between host trees and phytophagous insects?
2. How does fine-scale variation in species interactions scale up to impact regional geographic distributions of species?
