Senior undergraduate, CUNY-Staten Island

 I am an undergraduate senior at the CUNY College of Staten Island.  I will be receiving my B.S. in Biology in June of 2012.  I am currently working on my Honors Thesis, which focuses on the interactions of loblolly pine tree fungal endophytes.  This past summer I enjoyed an internship at Duke University in the lab of François Lutzoni, where I contributed to the research on Peltigera lichens.  My other interests lie in Ecology, Botany, Native American Anthropology, and bird migrations.
