I am committed to fostering and embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion in science and workplace and welcome students and researcher regardless of protected characteristics and other categories such as race, sex assigned at birth, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, or disability.

Graduate students

Currently, my lab’s research focuses on seed conservation related work based in Hawaii (applied work) and soil pollen ecology as well as species coexistence theory (basic work). I do not currently have funding for an RAship so you will need to be supported through a TAship on a competitive basis or other external fellowship/scholarship. If you are interested in conducting research on the aforementioned topics and you are interested in joining my lab as an MS student or a Ph.D. student in Fall 2022, please contact me. The School of Life Sciences Botany program has only one admission cycle per year. Please see details on admission here.

Undergraduate students

If you are interested in gaining research experience in my lab, please contact me. There are research opportunities in both the lab on campus (St. John) and the lab at Harold L. Lyon Arboretum (Seed Conservation Lab) through BOT399 Directed Research credit, the Honors Program, as a volunteer, or as a student worker.

Postdoctoral researchers

Currently, I do not have funding for postdocs. If you are interested in joining the lab with external funding or a fellowship, please contact me.
