Plant biochemistry, plant propagation, mass spectrometry
I grew up in the Twin Cities and did my undergraduate at UW-Eau Claire where I studied biochemistry and music. I knew I wanted to study plant science after spending two summers interning at Cedar Creek on an experiment studying how plants respond to changes in CO2. I decided to do a Masters in Applied Plant Sciences here at the University of Minnesota, working in Jerry Cohen’s lab studying hormonal limitations to adventitious rooting in hazelnuts. I plan to continue working with hazelnuts, investigating ways to improve vegetative propagation. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, wandering aimlessly, and exploring new places.
