Ezgi joins our team!
Ezgi Ogutcen has joined our team as a new postdoc. She will expand our projects towards the tropics as she will study the evolution of both temperate and tropical plants from the willow family. We hope that this project will reveal how gradients in biotic interactions and abiotic conditions shape the chemical diversity in plants.
