Dr. Amanda Meier

Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences

I am a community ecologist interested in understanding how microbial communities influence multitrophic interactions among plants, insects and their predators. To do so, I utilize greenhouse experiments and field studies, coupled with molecular and chemical techniques. I apply this research to sustainable agriculture, working to develop novel methods of natural pest control for organic farmers. If you are interested in diving into these areas of research, please email me about research opportunities! 

I am passionate about teaching and mentoring undergraduates and offer students a welcoming and inclusive learning community in my classroom and lab. In my courses, I utilize evidence-based teaching practices to engage students to think critically across scientific disciplines and develop core skills in the process of science.
