Jill Anderson

Jill earned her B.Sc. from Brown University and her Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University. After a postdoc with Dr. Thomas Mitchell-Olds at Duke University, and an early faculty position at the University of South Carolina, she joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics and Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia in 2015. Her research examines the ecological and evolutionary consequences of global change for natural plant populations in tropical and temperate ecosystems. She has conducted field work at RMBL since 2009. She maintains experimental gardens in five locations across Gunnison county, from low elevation locales near the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery to alpine ecosystems in the North Pole Basin. Jill brings perspective to the Board as a relatively early-career scientist with broad field experience at RMBL, elsewhere in the U.S., and in South America
