CAMILLE E DEFRENNE

 Forest ecologist specialized in below-ground ecosystems

 

BIO

At age 7, I promised myself to be a paleontologist. I am now digging soil, not looking for dinosaurs’ bones, admittedly, but looking for somethings equally fascinating: roots and mycorrhizal fungi. After getting an engineer diploma in Agronomy in France, I got my PhD in Forestry, under the supervision of Dr. Suzanne Simard, at the University of British Columbia, Canada. I then joined the Climate Change Science Institute at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to work with Dr. Colleen Iversen and unravel root and mycorrhizal fungal dynamics in a warming peatland.
