Dori is a graduate student working at the interface of paleobotany and tropical ecology to understand the functional evolution of rainforests. Her research focuses on the late Mesozoic and uses a combination of paleo and extant techniques to investigate the ecological roles of angiosperms and gymnosperms in fossil plant assemblages from tropical paleo-climates.
