"I started working with Anjanette in September of 2017. The thing that impressed me initially was Anjanette’s unbridled concern for the environment, especially forest ecosystems. After several years of collaboration, I have found that Anjanette’s field research has produced high-quality data that have resulted in several joint peer-reviewed publications. Not only is Anjanette a good colleague philosophically but she is also well respected scientifically."
