Katherine Pope

Aug 20, 2013 admin
Graduate in Horticulture and Agronomy

Katherine is a recipient of the Pearl D. and Dr. Royce S. Bringhurst Research Assistantship Endowment. The Bringhurst Endowment has given Katherine the flexibility and opportunity to focus more on her studies of how temperature impacts bloom and leaf emergence of California’s almonds, pistachios and walnuts, including recent and potential future responses to climate change. Katherine spent needed lab time gathering and analyzing decades of records from UC nut breeding programs, as well as three spring seasons traveling the Central Valley gathering new data, all of which will be included in her dissertation. The benefit of philanthropic support, Katherine adds, “has been invaluable in allowing me the time to make huge strides in my research over the last year.”
