Event Description

Dr. Ivette Guzman, plant biochemistry professor at Northern New Mexico College, has a lifelong passion for plants and their healing, medicinal, and chemical properties. Dr. Guzman’s current interest is in integrating all aspects of plant biochemistry to allow for better understanding of plant ecophysiology, the study of plant biochemistry, and metabolism of specialized metabolites as they are affected by interactions with the environment.

Guzman was born in Mexico and immigrated with her family to the Texas panhandle in the early '80s. After being raised in a part-time field working family, she earned her Bachelors of Science in Biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio, followed by a Masters of Science in Biology at Texas Woman's University, where she began her work in plant phytoestrogens. She earned her PhD from New Mexico State University in Plant and Environmental Sciences, where she focused on identifying metabolically diverse peppers by chemically and genetically profiling pepper cultivars. Recently, she finished several years in a postdoctoral fellowship at North Carolina State University. She now lives in Chimayo and is an Assistant Professor in Plant Biology and Biochemistry at Northern New Mexico College.

A short chapter meeting precedes the talk. Native plant books will be on display and available for purchase. This free public program is sponsored by the Albuquerque Chapter, Native Plant Society of New Mexico.
