Brief bio: Dr. Natalie Clark is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Iowa State University in the lab of Dr. Justin Walley. She is a systems biologist who uses a combination of experimental, mathematical, and computational methods to address several biological questions including plant development, hormone crosstalk, and disease resistance in both Arabidopsis and maize. She received a USDA-NIFA Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in 2019 for her work on Northern Corn Leaf Blight resistance. Natalie originally studied Drosophila genetics during her undergraduate education before transitioning into plant biology during graduate school.
