Research Interests

Dr. Richer’s work is focused on the  physiological ecology of plants and microbial communities, focusing on semi-arid to hyper-arid environments. 

For more than a decade, she has been working to understand the physiology and ecology of complex biocrusts in deserts and the bioactive compounds they produce. She is particularly interested in how environmental factors influence compound production and isomer ratios.
