Location: Hitchner Hall

Research:  My research centers around the intertidal red alga Porphyra umbilicalis. I am interested in understanding the roles that the P. umbilicalis bacterial microbiome have on host development and growth. I am also interested in genetic transformation systems in red algae, as well as early development and cell division patterns of young germlings.
