Areas of specialization
Plant-microbe interactions and trophic ecology
Originally from Mattapan, Mass., Rondy is a first-generation Haitian-American. His research interest spans the realm of applied and basic ecology. His past research topics have included population structure of a non-indigenous weed, microbial bioprotection of crops, microbes in trophic ecology, and wood decomposition in eastern mixed hardwood forests. Currently, Rondy is interested in unraveling ways in which elements of global change may impact microbes and plant secondary metabolites.
