ABOUT ME

28C856A0-8054-4CCD-9099-CDEAE9CBAE6A.jpeg

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in Maggie Wagner's lab at the University of Kansas. I earned my PhD in plant pathology from the University of California Riverside under the advisement of Caroline Roper.

I aim to unravel the complex interactions between plant-associated microbial communities and their hosts. I am particularly interested in microbiome evolution and microbiome-mediated stress responses. By uncovering more details about these communities I hope to help increase plant health and productivity. See the "research" tab above for more information.
