Research Interests

I am an aspiring botanist.  I am specifically interested in ethnobotany/economic botany.


I am from Newton Grove, NC.  In my spare time I like to read, listen to sad music, cook, and try/make new hot sauces


During my Fall ’23 externship, I processed wmSP and wmS0 heads to be used for Wyatt Mosiman‘s thesis.  I used the resulting reproductive data from said heads with the corresponding plant measure data to assess the relationship between cumulative vegetative effort over 5 years (2018-2022) and reproductive effort and success in 2023.  The path to my materials is: ~/Dropbox/ccExterns2023/ioHarris
