I am working at the Kane lab at CU Boulder ( on genomic evolution of Cannabis. I am the CEO and cofounder of the Agricultural Genomics Foundation (, a non-profit organization that aims in providing genomic tools to the Cannabis industry to improve breeding. Also cofounder of the Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative (CGRI; I finished my PhD at the Lively lab at IU ( on the spatial and temporal distribution of parasites and sexual reproduction.
