I am gay and I am an assistant professor of plant genetics. //
I teach genetics and work on plant chromosome evolution in the School of Biology and Ecology at the University of Maine. At UMaine, we are actively working toward building a culture of diversity, equality, and inclusion, and I’m really excited to be part of this effort. I’m thankful to friends, mentors, and colleagues who’ve helped me along the way, and I’m hoping to help break down barriers to ensure that STEMM continues to become even more welcoming.
