About me

I'm interested in protecting and documenting rare plant species, using genomic data to inform conservation, and connecting with other folks passionate about the environment. I conducted my Master's research on members of the Parryi section of the Primula genus, and currently work with threatened tree species (especially Quercus).

I have limited training in plant identification, and primarily use iNat as a way to increase my knowledge and learn from the identifications of others. Tips and/or hints when I get things wrong are greatly appreciated
