I joined Dr. Dassanayake’s lab in 2022 Fall as a Ph.D. student. I graduated from LSU with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a minor in Geology in 2019. I helping to pioneer a Planetary Geobiology Ph.D. program here at LSU, where I will not only be working in this lab but also with the Planetary Science Lab in the geology department. With these two labs I will be working on research involving extremophytes and how these plants could potentially grow in extreme environments like Mars for future manned missions.
