Aleca BorsukHello! I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Yale School of the Environment working in the Brodersen Lab. My research interests are plant morphology, plant physiology, and bio-inspired technology. My current studies are aimed at characterizing 3D leaf traits, understanding how these influence natural variation in photosynthetic capacity, and modeling biophysical processes such as light propagation and carbon dioxide transport within the heterogeneous inner landscape of the leaf.
