Research Projects/Interests

The Triplett Lab investigates how predatory microeukaryotes affect the ecology, evolution, and behavior of beneficial and harmful bacteria that live on plants, and how this affects plant growth and function. We also study the strategies by which bacterial pathogens survive chemical and biological controls when they lack genetic resistance.

I am co-founder and CAES coordinator of a USDA-REEU called the Plant Health Fellows program (2017-2026), and am happy to connect about this or other summer and semester research opportunities in the New Haven area.
