Courtenay Ray


I am a PhD student in Benjamin Blonder’s lab at the University of California, Berkeley. I study plant interactions and community assembly processes and am especially interested in environments with strong abiotic filters, such as alpine, desert, and arctic plant communities. My current research takes place in the Rocky Mountains, CO and in the Sonoran Desert, AZ. Other sites where I have worked include Colombia, the Mariana Islands, Mt. Rainier, and the Channel Islands. My current CV is available here.
