Research Associate

Dr. Miranda Sinnott-Armstrong is a plant evolutionary biologist studying the evolution of biophotonic structures in fruits.  She graduated with a PhD from Yale University in 2019 where she described global spatial patterns in fruit coloration as well as the evolution of fruit color, and in particular structural colors, in the plant clade Viburnum.  After visiting Cambridge multiple times during her PhD, Miranda joined Silvia's lab for a postdoc (joint with Stacey Smith at the University of Colorado-Boulder) where she is working to characterize novel structures in fruits, study the morphological origins of these novel structures, and test some hypotheses about ecological function of fruit color.
