Dr. Ogle currently is an Associate Professor in Informatics and Computing at Northern Arizona University. She joined the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University in 2011 after having spent four years as an Assistant Professor at the University of Wyoming. She received her Masters in statistics and PhD in biology, with an emphasis in ecology, from Duke University in 2003. Dr. Ogle did her post-doctoral work at Princeton University, which was funded by an NSF Biological Informatics fellowship. Dr. Ogle's research aims to improve our ability to understand and predict how plants, plant communities, and ecosystems are affected by environmental perturbations such as those associated with climate change.
