I'm currently a PhD student at UC Berkeley studying plant community ecology. I love high places and am most interested in tropical systems, especially canopies in wet tropical forests. While I've been a naturalist for a long time, I just recently moved to California, so I'm trying to get a handle on all these new western and endemic CA species! I'm strongest in identifying woody plants in Eastern North America, but am familiar with a variety of eastern fungi, algae, animals, etc.

I'm improving my skills as a botanist in the hope that I will have more and more excuses to go to more absurd lengths and heights to reach my leafy quarry.

I observe more than I identify, so many thanks to those who are helping me bump my observations up to research grade! I will pay it forward.
