Graduate Students

Many graduate students in the Field of Plant Biology are advised by faculty members whose main affiliation is also with the Department of Plant Biology; they are housed in the Plant Science Building, in Emerson Hall or in Mann Library. Other students choose an advisor whose main affiliation is with a different department, and can therefore be housed in any of the other buildings on campus or as far as laboratories at the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG).

Current graduate students are listed below, and a list of graduate student alumni is also available.
