Peter Kennedy, PhD
Co-Lead Principal Investigator, Cedar Creek Long-Term Ecological Research program
Dr. Peter Kennedy has been the co-leader of the Cedar Creek LTER program since 2023. His research integrates multiple biological disciplines: mycology and microbiology, ecology and evolution, and molecular biology and biochemistry. Though field sampling and experiments, along with greenhouse, growth chamber, and culture-based studies, his lab group seeks to mechanistically understand how both biotic and abiotic factors influence the structure and functioning of ecological communities.
