Verity G Salmon

Postdoctoral Research Associate


Dr. Verity G. Salmon is a postdoctoral researcher working within the Environmental Sciences Division and the Climate Change Science Institute at ORNL. Her research on the NGEE Arctic project focuses on understanding how above- and belowground plant traits will change in response to warmer temperatures and permafrost thaw. She received her BA in Biology from Boston University in 2009 and competed her PhD at the University of Florida in 2016.
