Research Spotlight: Department of Plant & Soil Science’s Haydee Laza
By: Norman Martin
Haydee Laza, an assistant professor of plant physiology in the Department of Plant & Soil Science, joined the Texas Tech faculty in 2019. Her research broadly centers on the study of semi-arid agroecosystem functioning across biological, spatial, and temporal scales using an integrative transdisciplinary approach. In addition, she is interested in plant communication and the use of phytochemicals to improve human health.
One of her goals is to use applied physiology as a base to establish a collaborative network aiming to identify novel interdisciplinary research gaps. The Cuban native has two master's degrees: a master's degree in international agriculture from Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany) and a master's degree in plant biology from Havana University (Cuba). Her doctorate in plant and soil science is from Texas Tech.
