Dr. Way holds a PhD and B.Sc. from the University of Toronto and did her post-doc at Duke University. Her research focuses on physiological responses to high temperatures, drought stress and changes in CO2 concentration, with the goal of determining the mechanisms underpinning plant responses to global change at molecular and biochemical scales, and the implications of these responses for the larger community and ecosystem scales.
She has published over 65 papers in this field and her scientific impact has been acknowledged through her election to the College of the Royal Society of Canada and her receipt of the C.D. Nelson award by the Canadian Society of Plant Biologists. Dr. Way is also active in the scientific publishing community where she is the Reviews Editor for Global Change Biology, a Topic Editor for Plant, Cell & Environment, and was recently the Associate Editor-in-Chief of Tree Physiology.
