About:
I am a current member of the Ward Lab and have been since 2010. I am a PhD student in the UW Biology Dept. studying evolutionary physiology. My interest includes evolution, mass extinctions, plant biology and photosynthesis. Currently I have been evaluating atmospheric variability’s with regards to plant evolution and more specifically how hydrogen sulfide affects photosynthesis, plant growth and health.
