PhD Candidate, University of Maryland

I am a PhD student studying mycology in agricultural and vector biology systems. I am working on projects analyzing mycorrhizal interactions in agriculture, the transcriptomics of malaria mosquitoes, and genomes of entomopathogenic fungi. I have worked as part of an international team to usher transgenic insect-killing fungi through semi-field trials in Soumousso, Burkina Faso in sub-Saharan Africa.
