Erin Treiber has been involved in grape research at the University of Minnesota for five years. In 2017, Erin completed her Ph.D. in Plant Biological Sciences focusing on the evolution of a plant-insect interaction at the University of Minnesota. Her focus on plant-insect interactions led to a 2-year postdoctoral project in the Bee Laboratory. Erin is currently a researcher focusing on table grapes in the Grape Breeding and Enology lab. Her research focuses on table grapes as a potential new perennial crop for growers.
