Bio: I am interested in investigating the interactions of the plant-associated microbiome. More precisely, I am curious as to how the plant-associated microbiome can be manipulated to enhance crop yield and increase resilience to disease and environmental stressors. I plan on extending my research to inform agricultural practices and biotechnology development.
