Madeline Piller


I decided that my life was headed towards some natural science field when I fell in love with the Chicago Field Museum at age seven. I was enamored with the taxidermy, the dinosaur bones, and of course the crown jewel: the hall of plants. My enthusiasm for all things science has only increased since then, and is now flourishing here in the laboratory.

I am very pleased to be assisting on two projects this summer. Both projects I am involved in are attempting to assess a variety of plant reactions to heightened atmospheric carbon dioxide. It is my hope to continue to learn from my colleagues and lab experience and to discover more about lesser known plant defense processes.
