Major: Botany and Plant Pathology

Peer Mentor: Matt Kaiser

Faculty Mentor: Dr. Lynda Ciuffetti


I grew up in Muskegon, Michigan. I chose to come to OSU because this school provides the education and numerous amounts of opportunities to succeed as a student.  I am majoring in botany and plant pathology.  For my undergraduate research, I am primarily studying host-pathogen interactions, specifically, interactions involving fungal pathogens. I am still in the midst of exploring my career goals in the subject of botany, but I am utilizing the many opportunities OSU has to offer to find them. The best part of OSU is its amazing and passionate staff.
