research overview

  • Dr. Smith's research is focused on the evolution and ecology of insects. To study insect evolution and ecology, she works at very different spatial and temporal scales; conducting both in depth field-based research at targeted localities and large-scale literature based research across multiple geologic time intervals. She also conducts studies in modern ecosystems and in the lab to learn more about the specifics of plant-insect interactions and processes of fossilization.
