I am a recent PhD graduate from Utah State University in the Department of Biology and Ecology Center mentored by Associate Professor Morgan Ernest. I studied orchard system modeling and tree physiology to understand the impact of tree size and architecture on tree growth and fruit production. For my research program, I worked closely with the College of Agriculture at Utah State and was jointly advised by Professor Brent Black. I obtained my B.S. and M.S. at the University of Michigan in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the School of Natural Resources and Environment, respectively. I am currently seeking a postdoctoral or entry-level faculty position in horticulture and ecology.

"Mankind, as it appears to me, are always ripe enough to understand their true interest, provided it be presented clearly
to their understanding, and that in a manner not to create suspicion by anything like self-design, nor offend by
assuming too much. Where we wish to reform, we must not reproach."
