MSc Student
Research Interests
:
  •  Exploring how micro-organisms, plants and humans can work together

Her research with Dr. Marney Isaac and UTSC Integrative Agroecology Lab will collaborate with Centro Agronomico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE), Costa Rica, and their long-term coffee agroforestry research site. This project will measure how different fertilization and shade treatments in coffee agroforestry systems impact the spread of coffee leaf-rust, a disease that threatens coffee-production and therefore coffee growers.

Sarah is passionate about this research as  coffee leaf-rust is causing increasing significant damage to farmers across the Americas and Africa with climate change. This research aims to support farmers in utilizing low-chemical input systems, particularly in tropical environments, that face increased pest outbreaks and contribute to The Integrative Agroecology Lab’s vital research.
