Camille Wendlandt

Camille Wendlandt is a postdoctoral researcher interested in the evolutionary ecology of the legume-rhizobia symbiosis. She received a PhD in Plant Biology from the University of California, Riverside in 2019, where she studied the effects of soil nitrogen enrichment on legume traits that enforce cooperation by rhizobia. In the Porter Lab, she is investigating how legume interactions with rhizobia change as plants invade new habitats or become domesticated by humans. Outside of the lab, Camille enjoys running, visiting the farmer’s market, and spinning yarn.
