I received my Bachelor’s in Biology from California University of Pennsylvania. I am currently a third-year PhD candidate at Ohio University in the labs of Drs. Sarah Wyatt and Harvey Ballard. My dissertation work focuses on identifying candidate genes and ecological cues involved in chasmogamous and cleistogamous floral development in the mixed breeding system of Viola pubescens. I am passionate about science education and outreach, and when I am not in the lab or field, I spend my time organizing and hosting outreach events for the local community through my role as president of the Ohio University student affiliate of the American Association of University Women.
