Plant Anatomy


I conducted my undergraduate thesis in the Specht Lab at Cornell University, analyzing phylogenetic and geographic patterns of leaflet anatomy in the cycad genus Zamia.


After undergrad, I stayed at Cornell as a research assistant studying the hormonal and anatomical basis for twining movements in woody vines with Dr. Joyce Onyenedum (nee Chery).
