Last week, I attended the Green Life Sciences Symposium organized by the Green Life Sciences Initiative at the University of Michigan. The two-day symposium brought together plant scientists from all over the US and a few international places. I gave a talk on my recent paper looking at the effects of dew deposition on leaf transpiration using stable isotopes. For me, it was especially great to connect with plant scientists at the University of Michigan that I had not had a chance to interact with yet. The organizers also worked really hard to ensure that women and POC were represented, and we got to see multiple talks by inspiring women in the field, including Johanna Schmitt, Beronda Montgomery, and Deborah Goldberg.
