Work and Research

I am passionate about botany and the associated usage of plants as medicines. I believe that nature holds many answers to questions we haven't even thought of asking. My field of study is ethnopharmacology and phytochemistry. This presents me with the opportunity to combine age-old knowledge with cutting edge technology, discovering and developing something that will hopefully have an impact.
