Dr. Hannah Kinmonth-Schultz grew up in Hanover, WI. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BS in Botany and received her MS in Forestry and PhD in Biology at the University of Washington-Seattle. Her research expertise is in plant environmental perception and the mechanisms controlling plants' transition to flowering, especially in complex and changing environments. She uses a multidisciplinary approach that spans molecular biology, physiological ecology, and statistical and mathematical modeling. Hannah is also an enthusiastic educator. Her classroom teaching experience spans Kindergarten through the undergraduate and graduate student levels. These experiences coupled with her own educational experiences have driven her to seek solutions to address the diversity gap in STEM, culminating most recently in co-founding of Jayhawks Breaking Barriers at the University of Kansas where she was postdoctoral researcher in the Joy Ward and Lena Hileman labs. As an Assistant Professor at Tennessee Tech, she is interested in pursuing both plant- and education-based research questions.
