Sonya is a Postdoctoral Researcher with Prof. Vigdis Vandvik at the University of Bergen, Norway. She is working part of the EMERALD research group, which is trying to better understand the terrestrial ecosystem-climate interactions of alpine and arctic systems. Her role is to improve our process based understanding of these relationships by synthesizing across observational and experimental research approaches.
Sonya undertook her PhD at The Australian National University, studying with Professor Adrienne Nicotra in the Division of Ecology and Evolution. Her PhD involved working as part of a collaborative project which was conducting a comparative ecological study on phenotypic plasticity in water use traits, using a multi-site, multi-species design. In addition to this, she also investigated Australian alpine plant ecology, in particular, responses to increasing temperatures, and reduced water availability across elevational gradients.
