About

I am a 4th-year Environmental Science major native to northern Mexico. I joined the lab in the spring semester of 2019 under the mentorship of Javier Jauregui. I am heavily interested in population and communication ecology as well as different plant species and the roles they play in sustaining our environment. Particularly, I am extremely interested in how often disregarded plant species such as the everyday moss and lichen keep ecosystem in balance by working individually or cooperatively. In the Bryolab, I am currently assisting Javier in developing a taxonomic review through morphological analysis of various herbarium specimens of South American moss, Syntrichia.
