Co-Director, Climate Adaptation Research Center
Department of Plant Sciences
Grey Monroe is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Plant Sciences. His research aims to discover how plants adapt to climate with an emphasis on using genomics to identify genes and molecular mechanisms contributing to climate resilience in wild and domesticated species. By studying the evolution of climate adaptation in ecologically and agriculturally important plants, his work addresses questions about the fundamental processes behind organism climate resilience and practical challenges for plant conservation and breeding in the face of rapidly changing climates.
