Plenary Address - Beronda Montgomery

Montgomery, Beronda [1].

From Seeds of change to a Harvest of Discovery.

Dr. Montgomery’s research in the area of photobiology seeks to understand how organisms such as plants and cyanobacteria perceive and respond to cues their environment. She is especially focused on the complex way in which photosynthetic organisms respond to light. Dr. Montgomery’s work on plant pigments such as the biliprotein phytochromes seeks to uncover the molecular mechanisms that operate in different organs of the plant, revealing the processes by which the light environment where plants grow shapes their growth processes and stress-responses. The cultivation of an integrated career in plant biology, education and service requires planning, strategic and intentional engagement of mentors, and career envisioning. In this talk, Dr. Montgomery will describe her path to date, which has included key branch points that have advanced her core research in photobiology of plants, while providing complementary opportunities to acquire new skills and integrate engagement in scholarship on mentoring and leadership.
