Ph.D. University of Minnesota, Plant and Microbial Biology, 2017
I am broadly interested in plant-insect interactions. My research has used DNA to build phylogenies of tropical plants and identify stem nesting materials by native bees. My research now focuses on breeding grapes and assessing the quality of table grapes in Minnesota.
