Principal Investigator

Gordon Fitch

I’ve been fascinated by animals and plants for as long as I can remember, and it’s a dream to get paid to spend time with them and think about them. I’m motivated to better understand the intricate complexity of plant-animal interactions because I think this understanding is essential to conserving these interactions.

I became and ecologist thanks to the enthusiasm and passion of multiple mentors and role models, and I do my best to pay it forward by lighting the spark in others. I am dedicated to making the field of ecology more diverse, inclusive, and oriented towards justice.
