Research Overview

I received a PhD in Plant Biology from Michigan State University working on the regulation of resource exchange between hosts plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). In 2022, I joined Dr. Jeongmin Choi's research group as a PostDoc at the Crop Science Centre where I continue to work on AMF with of focus on nutrient signaling under combinatorial stresses.
