Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at Utica University, Utica, NY. My research focuses on fungal secondary metabolism, drug discovery, chemical ecology, evolution, and taxonomy.

I am frequently haunting the forests of the Adirondacks stalking charismatic macrofungi. I am particularly keen on Hypocrealean entomopathogenic fungi and allies (AKA Cordyceps sensu lato). My pet project is, the "North American Cordyceps sensu lato" aimed at cataloging the Cordyceps occurring in N.A., and learning more about them.

I voucher most of my fungal collections in my personal herbarium, in case any of my finds are of interest to other researchers.

I highly encourage other mushroomers to voucher their collections. Some guidelines on that here:
