My interests lie both in applied and theoretical plant sciences, so I can speak to a range of experiences: from undergraduate research in a plant systematics lab, to interning with the Denver Botanic Gardens (in research, interpretation, and education departments), to farming and assisting in wine harvests, to urban forest restoration. My own path entailed a lot of exploration about what aspects of plants and plant-systems inspired me most; and so I am certainly happy to speak to folks who aren't sure where their interest in plants might lead them, as well as those who have a pretty good hunch of what careers they'd like to pursue.
