University of Minnesota Plant Pathology Doctoral Candidate. I am currently a graduate research assistant in Dr. Robert Blanchette's laboratory. My areas of research are fungi associated with emerald ash borer, specifically canker fungi. I also research biosurveillance of invasive fungal pathogens throughout the state of Minnesota.

I enjoy exploring the forest and woody landscape and looking for fungi. I am passionate about forest pathology and mycology. My favorite edible fungi are morels (being a Minnesotan), lobster mushrooms and black trumpets. Non-edible favorites include Ganoderma, Fomes, and Fomitopsis.

I also have a keen interest in identifying trees and woody plants. My favorites are Ohio buckeye, eastern hemlock and pin oak.
