I am an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Agricultural Education Department & a PhD student in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona. My previous  research focused on the highly invasive weed, yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis).  I studied whether there is variation in immune response among plants in the native and invaded range of yellow starthistle.
