Spotlight: Janette Steets, PhD, Director of Data Science Published in High-Profile Peer-Reviewed Journal
Congratulations to Janette Steets, PhD & ILW Director of Data Science
Global Data Synthesis and Meta-Analysis
Janette leveraged her functional knowledge, experimental design, and statistical analysis expertise as a contributor to a world-wide study on plant pollination, which was five years in the making and recently published in a high-profile peer-reviewed journal, Nature Communications. For this study, a team of scientists performed global data synthesis and meta-analysis to determine how land use changes affect reproductive success of wild plants.
