Interviews with scientists about their research, diversity, equity and inclusion

MPMI Interactions

Throughout the year, we have been conducting interviews with women plant pathologists to talk about their research and their efforts in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion. Our first set of interviews feature Dr. Valerie Williamson (UC Davis) who was interviewed by Ani, and Dr. Barbara Kunkel (Washington University in St. Louis) who was interviewed by Yeram. Our second set of interviews feature Dr. Wenbo Ma (Sainsbury Labs) who was interviewed by Yeram, and Dr. Kimberly Webb (USDA) who was interviewed by Ani. We greatly appreciate their willingness to share their research and experiences and hope that others will be inspired to join our field! The interviews can be found here:
