I am open to all possible interdisciplinary research and teaching collaborations!

In my spare time, I like traveling, exercising, hiking, cooking, and gardening. I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the United States during my time here whether on conference trips or personal vacations. I also enjoy exploring locally, and have been on many hikes in southwest Virginia and neighboring states. I like trying to cook new recipes from various cuisines. Sometimes I use fresh herbs and vegetables from my garden and donate extra harvest to local food banks.
