I am an assistant professor at the Department of Biological Sciences at Mississippi State University. I am also the curator of the herbarium MISSA.
I work on plant biodiversity from evolutionary and ecological perspectives and have a special interest in bioinformatics approaches that use herbarium specimens and other biocollections data. Hobbies!Illustrations!
Nick is interested broadly in plant systematics and has a background in herbarium work from his undergraduate studies at the University of South Alabama.
He will be studying species limits and hybridization in Heuchera in the Southeast, both from genomic and phenotypic perspectives.
