Hello! My name is Taylor ~ I am a big hearted mycophile with a passion for the natural world and all of its systems. I am a new face to the Bay Area, moving here from sunny Florida last year. I deeply desire to integrate myself in the scientific community in the Bay Area, as well as learn everything I can about the native ecosystems, plant, animal, and fungal life of the West Coast. With a background in Biology and Environmental Science, I feel as if I have a diverse spectrum of skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to contribute to BAAM research inside and outside the laboratory, on a micro and macro scale, to make lasting environmental and social change while discovering awesome things from our fungal friends!
