lizschultheisI am a postdoctoral researcher at MSU’s BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action, advised by Louise Mead. As a graduate student at MSU I co-founded Data Nuggets, an innovative approach to bring authentic, cutting edge research and data into the classroom. Data Nuggets reveal to students how the process of science really works and increase the connections between scientists and the public. Our research will help to determine whether these activities can increase student quantitative literacy and engagement with science.

I completed my PhD in Plant Biology and EEBB at MSU’s Kellogg Biological Station as a member of Jennifer Lau’s Lab. My dissertation research focused on the role of biotic interactions during invasion and how release from enemies could drive the success of invasive plants.

    Elizabeth – I attended a workshop you facilitated a couple years ago in Atlanta on the predator – prey relationship between lady bugs (lady beetles) and aphids. I loved the activity and use it regularly but have lost the link to the website you incorporated with the game and was hoping you could forward to me again. Congratulations on your PhD work – quite impressive!! I am currently working on a Master’s program called Project Dragonfly through Miami University of Ohio doing a lot of field work and conservation biology. This summer I will be working with primates in Borneo. Thank you so much for your help.
