Angie is a current Master’s student in the Museum and Field Studies program and a graduate assistant in the COLO Herbarium. Before moving to Colorado, she earned her undergraduate degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida where she spent a lot of time hanging out in various swamps. Angie is particularly interested in the community ecology within the lichen microbiome! For her Master’s thesis, Angie is investigating the associations between micro-invertebrates and lichen species in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She is also looking forward to honing her herbaria curatorial skillset. In her spare time, Angie likes to garden, hike and continue to learn about the natural world!
