Brief Biography
Dr. Subedi is a broadly trained plant biologist who engages in research at different biological scales - from organismal to community to ecosystem. He uses an integrative approach combining observational, experimental, and modeling techniques to unravel the short-term responses of plants to environmental changes and to understand over the long-term how environmental changes affect their structure and function.
