About Me

I am currently working on my M.S. in the Conservation Biology program at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY. My research focuses on the restoration of the federally threatened American Harts-Tongue fern in the Central New York region. The project is part of a long term collaborative effort between SUNY-ESF, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, NYS Parks, NYS DEC and the NY Natural Heritage Program, among others. 

I work as a Teaching Assistant at SUNY-ESF in the subjects of Diversity of Plants and Mycology. I am especially interested in plant biology, restoration ecology and conservation of endangered species.
