Research Interest

William joined us in January 2022 and studies root-root interactions. These interactions alter the architectural organization of individual root systems and therefore, affect nutrient foraging. With little research done into root-root interactions there is still much to discover about the root phenotypes arising from root-root interactions and functions. Quantifying architectural traits of root system interactions would provide insight about the cooperation vs. competition trade-off belowground.
