Research Focus: I am interested in determining the presence and prevalence of viral and viroid diseases
of hemp. This involves conducting disease surveys as well as adapting technologies to develop novel
disease diagnostic tools for growers.

Fun fact about yourself: I have a pretty poor sense of direction, and once got lost in the woods growing
up. I have been playing the long game to take my revenge by now infecting plants.
