Dr Marjorie Lundgren

Leverhulme Fellowship

Research Overview

Marjorie applies plant ecophysiology and phylogeographic methods to understand how diverse photosynthetic systems evolve. She is particularly interested in C3-C4 intermediate phenotypes and C2 photosynthesis. She is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow and Lecturer in Environmental Physiology within the Plant & Crop Science group in the Lancaster Environment Centre and is a member of the Photosynthesis Team at LEC. She earned her PhD in 2015 from the University of Sheffield and gained post-doctorate experience from the University of Sheffield, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.
