Research Associate

I am a Ph.D. student at the City University of New York studying lichen communities in the Northeast. Lichens are model organisms of symbiosis characterized by a host fungus and an internal photosynthetic alga and or cyanobacteria. I’m interested in the influence that these algae have on the distribution of lichen species in landscapes. My research interests include biogeography, interaction ecology, and systematics using a combination of floristic surveys and phylogenetics.
