Mentoring

One-on-one mentoring has been a focus of my postdoctoral career. I work with students to help them apply new skills to a variety of projects including 4,000+ interspecific crosses in ex-situ cultivated Solanum, new species descriptions, molecular lab work to support phylogenetic study, care of research plants, seed germination trials, preparation and execution of fieldwork, and the use of bioinformatics to analyze complex datasets, I love helping students excel.

Teaching

During my graduate experience at OSU, I taught the lab portions of Field Botany for 4 semesters and spent 1-2 semesters each in the General Biology, Plant Biology, and Plant Taxonomy courses. I have also presented individual lectures in Field Botany and served as an instructor for the phylogenomics portion of the team-taught course in Field and Lab Methods in Plant Biology and Conservation at Northwestern University.
