Sophie's Research

 

Sophie completed her BSc majoring in Marine Biology with a minor in Mathematics at Dalhousie University. She is beginning her masters research in the Gunawardena lab where she will be creating computational models to analyze vein patterning and perforation formation of the lace plant when treated with auxin inhibitor NPA and other known regulators. Sophie became interested in botanical research through her involvement with the Dalhousie Herbarium digitization project which she began volunteering with in 2018. Through this project she was introduced to the Gunawardena lab and lace plant research. Her honours project included an introduction to modelling which led to her interest in applying it in a botanical setting.

The summer before Sophie began her graduate studies (2020) she received the Sarah Lawson Research Scholarship to begin collecting data for her research. She is a member of the Atlantic Science Links Association (ASLA) and volunteers frequently. Sophie enjoys spending time in nature identifying plants, snorkeling around Nova Scotia beaches, and teaching students through her position as a TA.
