Research interests: I am interested in studying how current management of cranberry cuttings impacts pathogen incidence and movement, especially those involved the cranberry fruit rot (CFR) complex. My previous research includes addressing grower-oriented questions through the study of tomato and potato plant microbiome with a focus in bacterial endophytes, understanding how biotic and abiotic factors impact plant productivity and product quality and assessing these factors by conducting greenhouse and field studies.

Personal interests: When not in the lab, I enjoy cooking, trying food places in Madison, dancing and going to live shows. I also work with a group of graduate women in Women In Ag Science, an organization focused on highlighting women in agricultural sciences by telling their stories and breaking the misconception of ag scienceas a career.
