Ph.D. in Botany
I am currently working with Drs. Pam and Doug Soltis for my graduate degree.
During my undergraduate, I worked with Drs. Eric Hoffman and Linda Walters on a project assessing genetic diversity within natural populations of smooth cordgrass to ensure effective restoration efforts. I also worked with Dr. Chase Mason and Simone Lim-Hing on a project focused on genome duplication impact on secondary metabolite composition in non-cultivated species.
In Dr. J. Chris Pires lab, I worked with Hong An on unraveling the origins of allotetraploid Brassica napus.
With Drs. Pam and Doug Soltis, I investigated niche divergence among ploidal levels in a classic autopolyploid system, Galax urceolata.
