Personal Statement
Ectomycorrhizal fungi, nutrient dynamics, and ecological processes. The amalgam of all three, visualized in time.

Graduate Research Topic
My thesis research project consists of evaluating the ectomycorrhizal community response to nitrogen, phosphorus, and calcium additions in northern hardwood forests, and seeking to characterize exploratory hyphal response to nutrient additions through root tip analysis. Preliminary work is underway to couple these assessments with hyphal ingrowth bag incubations in the White Mountains, NH.
