Brief Bio: Climate change has been a focus of my attention since I was a kid. In college, I learned about all of the amazing things plants are capable of and immediately switched my major to Genetics and Plant Biology. I love plants as a hobby, as a part of nature, and as natural resources that have the power to do a lot of good for a lot of people. I’m excited to study the synthesis of cellulose which has proven to be such an important and versatile resource!
