About Christopher P Bickford

Christopher Bickford joined the Kenyon faculty in 2012 after completing postdocs at Landcare Research/Manaaki Whenua (New Zealand) and the University of New Mexico. His training is in environmental and ecological plant physiology, and he uses stable isotopes to study how environmental stress impacts plant physiology.

Very fortunately, numerous research opportunities during Bickford's graduate and postdoctoral training allowed him to conduct fieldwork in a number of ecosystems throughout the world, including semiarid and subalpine forest systems in the southwestern U.S. and alpine plant communities in New Zealand. His research interests are diverse and include alpine ecophysiology, mesophyll conductance to CO2, and plant carbon-water exchange. Current research efforts in his lab are focused on understanding the role trichome morphology and density plays in regulating leaf physiology.
