Christina Richards received her BA in Biology at Swarthmore College in 1995 and PhD in Botany from the University of Georgia in 2004. She worked with Massimo Pigliucci at Stony Brook University (2004-2006) and then with Michael Purugganan at New York University (2007-2009) as a post-doctoral fellow. She is now an Associate Professor in Integrative Biology at USF in Tampa. Since moving to USF she has worked with Professor Malika Ainouche at the University of Rennes 1 as a Fulbright Scholar in France (2016-2017) and with Professor Oliver Bossdorf as a Make Our Planet Great Again scholar in Germany at University of Tübingen. Christina’s primary research interests are understanding mechanisms of plant response to novel, stressful or changing environments.
