Brief bio:

I joined USU Biology in August 2020 after completing postdoctoral research in flower metabolomics at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology (Potsdam, Germany) and Wageningen University (The Netherlands) sponsored by a Marie-Curie Fellowship. Previous to that, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at North Carolina State University on metabolic engineering of volatile organic compounds. In my first postdoctoral cycle, I worked on plant ionomics at Purdue University and the University of Tokyo, Japan (JSPS Fellow).
