Meet a Biology Professor Who Loves Plants

Meet Dr. Amy Faivre, a Professor of Biology. Dr. Faivre joined the college faculty in 2002. Learn more about her scientific interests here.

(As posted on the Facebook page of Cedar Crest College (CCC) located in Allentown, PA.)

From Northampton, Massachusetts, she completed her undergraduate degree at fellow women’s college, Mount Holyoke College. Then she did graduate research at the University of Arizona in Tucson and Costa Rica, and additional research at Ohio State University and in Panama.

Now, Dr. Faivre shares the experience of the Arizona deserts and mountains with students by teaching a field course every other year (pictured) and studies endangered plant species in Florida. She loves to travel to learn about other countries and cultures, and spend time in nature— hiking, looking at plants, birds, rocks, and insects— ideally with her husband and daughter!
