I am currenty a postdoctoral researcher in the department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech. I am a member of the Whitehead Lab studying the apple microbiome.


All the Science!!

Meet also my Beasties - Nova (big dog), Sienna (little dog), Marley (big iguana) and Marvin (little goat).

They are part of our little home ecosystem. Always getting in trouble and keeping me on my toes. Just like research.
