Ohio State Newark Homecoming Celebration

The evening kicks off with dinner featuring guest speaker Karen Goodell, PhD, who joined the Ohio State Newark faculty in 2004. She teaches introductory biology to majors and non-majors, engages undergraduates in independent research, and trains graduate students. Her research investigates the interactions between plants and pollinators and has applications to native bee conservation, restoration of degraded lands and agriculture.

She earned a PhD in Ecology and Evolution from SUNY Stony Brook and an MS in Botany and Plant Sciences from the University of California.
