I am a PhD student in Integrative Genetics and Genomics at UC Davis in the Eisen lab. I received my B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology with a Genetics, Genomics and Development emphasis from UC Berkeley in the spring of 2013. While at UC Berkeley I participated in research in Dr. Ellen Simms’ lab on multiple projects involving rhizobia-legume symbiosis. My current research interests include plant-microbe interactions and the co-evolution of microbes and their hosts.
I am currently working on the Seagrass Microbiome project.
