Adrienne Roeder is an Associate Professor in the Weill Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology and the School of Integrative Plant Sciences, Section of Plant Biology at Cornell University. She earned her B.S. in Biological Sciences with a minor in Mathematical and Computational Sciences from Stanford University in 1999. She earned her PhD from UCSD working with Martin Yanofsky in 2005. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Caltech with Elliot Meyerowitz before starting her own lab at Cornell University studying cell size and organ size in Arabidopsis flowers using a computational morphodynamics approach. A central theme emerging from her lab’s research is the importance of stochasticity or variability and how the plant utilizes it to arrive at robust phenotypes.
