Dissertation/thesis title: The spatial distribution of invasive plant presence, abundance, and impact

Research Interests

Evelyn Beaury (Eve) is a PhD candidate in the Organismic and Evolutionary Biology program. She is broadly interested in invasive species, plant community ecology, and the impacts of global change. Her current projects are focused on understanding variation in biotic resistance across ecosystems of the U.S. and the role of the plant nursery industry in distributing invasive species. In addition to research, Eve is passionate about science communication and outreach. She actively participates in campus groups such as Life Science Cafe and That's Life [Science]. Eve is also a research scientist in the NE Regional Invasive Species and Climate Change Management Network (https://people.umass.edu/riscc/).
