Bio

Dr. Elizabeth Waring is a human. She is a fan of the genus Carex, wetlands, the Milwaukee Brewers, donuts, and talking about science.
Dr. Waring came to Northeastern State University in 2019 as an Assistant Professor of Biology in the Department of Natural Sciences.

Education:

  • PhD, Biology, Texas Tech University, 2017
  • MS, Biology, Fort Hays State University, 2010
  • BS, Biology, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 2007
Dr. Waring is interested in all things plants. Specifically the interaction of plant traits and their environment. Plant traits include anything from photosynthetic processes to whole plant structure.
Non-Majors, Plant Biology, Ecophysiology, Ecosystem Ecology
