MY ROLE

I am most excited to work with such an amazing group of researchers and collaborators to explore the microbiome of the Waimea watershed.

C-MĀIKI SYNERGY

I have experience with processing large quantities of samples using standard molecular biology techniques such as nucleic acid extraction, PCR, qPCR, gel electrophoresis, sample quantitation, and a variety of other "wet lab" techniques.

IMPACT TO HAWAII

Being a part of the C-MAIKI project, I hope to provide high quality data to assess the diversity of bacteria and fungi across the Waimea watershed through sample collection and processing. I hope this data will allow us to better understand the microbial distribution across different hosts, habitats, and gradients of human land use. I hope this first phase of the C-MAIKI project will allow us to begin understanding the complex interactions between different environmental factors and to perpetuate the survival of our many endemic flora and fauna here in Hawaii.
