Dr Marjorie Lundgren

Senior Research Fellow

Marjorie Lundgren

LEC Building



Research overview

Marjorie applies plant ecophysiology and phylogeographic methods to understand how diverse photosynthetic systems evolve. She is particularly interested in C3-C4 intermediate phenotypes and C2 photosynthesis. She is a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow and Senior Research Fellow in Environmental Physiology within the Plant & Crop Science group in the Lancaster Environment Centre and is a member of the Photosynthesis Team at LEC. She earned her PhD in 2015 from the University of Sheffield and gained post-doctorate experience from the University of Sheffield, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.
