Trevor is entering the fourth year of his undergraduate degree with a major in Biology. Trevor’s work in the Gunawardena Lab started with him approaching Dr. Gunawardena after class in Diversity of Life II. She inspired him to apply for the Sarah Lawson Scholarship in Botany for which he later became a recipient of for the summers of 2012 & 2013. The scholarship afforded him the opportunity to study the ecology of the lace plant, and more specifically, to look into the possible functions of the lace plants’ perforated leaves. In addition, Trevor is working with Adrian in looking into the role of anthocyanin in lace plant PCD, and the morphology of different types of induced cell death. Born and raised in Calgary, Trevor’s weekends were often spent in the numerous parks around his home or hiking in the Rockies with his family. He views this time in nature as fundamental to sparking his interests in ecology and community dynamics and looks forward to where his research will take him.
