Chandler Sutherland – 2022 Wonderfest Science Envoy

Chandler Sutherland

Chandler Sutherland is a graduate student at UC Berkeley studying the evolution of plant immune systems in the Krasileva lab. Her interest in plants stems from a passion for food security in response to climate change. Fundamental to this is understanding how plants have evolved to fight pests, in order to harness their hard work and reduce our reliance on pesticides. Outside of lab, you can find her surfing the California coast and brewing kombucha.
