Welcome to my personal webpage:



I

I am an Assistant Professor of Biology at Catawba College, Salisbury NC USA. Trained as a botanist
and ecologist and with broad interests in parasitic and mycoheterotrophic plants, molecular plant
systematics, fire ecology, GIS, and plant-insect interactions.

Research Interests:

If you are a current or prospective student at Catawba College please contact me to get involved in undergraduate biological research. I always have several student working on projects and attending regional meetings.
