I am currently working on a Master's in the department of Plant Pathology at Cornell. My work investigates the population structure, distribution, and ecological role of endosymbiotic bacteria of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in coastal sand dunes.

My main research interests are in ecology and conservation. I am especially interested in how organisms use their habitat, and how both anthrophogenic and natural disturbances impact the ecology of these organisms and biodiversity.
