I recently immigrated to Albuquerque, NM from California and am eager to learn the flora out here! I'm currently working as a botanist for the state based out of the Forestry Division (Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department of New Mexico).

I have a particular fondness for alpine plants, and some of the groups commonly encountered in California's eastern Sierra Nevada: Draba, Potentilla, Ivesia, Oxytropis, and others. My recently defended (2022) MS thesis was a specimen-based inventory of the plants of Coyote Ridge and Flat, Inyo Co., California:

MS in Botany (2022) - California Botanic Garden / Claremont Graduate University (
BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology & BA in Environmental Studies (2013) - UC Santa Cruz.
