I am a postdoctoral researcher in Sheng Yang He's lab at Michigan State University. My research interests are in enhancing plant resilience by understanding how plants perceive and respond to multiple stresses. I also have a passion for building small, interconnected scientific communities to create optimal learning environments for students and post docs that will motivate and inspire cutting edge scientific research and facilitate diverse skill development. One of my current efforts towards this goal is The Community of Minds. Check it out at
