I currently serve as the manager for the Atmospheric Deposition site for the Leisner Lab and additionally have a split appointment with the Potnis Lab in plant pathology. My primary research focuses on plant-microbe interactions, understanding the alterations that occur in the plant microbiome upon infection with foliar bacterial pathogens, how these alterations occur, and how understanding them can be exploited for the development of microbial based remedies. Outside of research I enjoy cooking, traveling, and gardening and am an avid collector of carnivorous plants.
