Daniella Allevato is a Ph.D. Candidate in Plant Biology, in the School of Integrative Plant Sciences. Her research is on understanding the chemical diversity in the leaves of the neotropical plant genus Pilocarpus, to aid in the conservation of this genus as well as guide a more sustainable production of this plant in agriculture. Her thesis examines how different factors: environmental variation, phylogenetic relationships, and human interference have shaped the distribution of species and compounds produced by this plant genus.
