Note: If I don't reply to your message, I may be busy with schoolwork, but I promise I'll respond eventually. :)

I'm a student at MIT – born and raised in California – studying biology and computer engineering. On iNat, I'm focused on the taxonomy and identification of orchids, primarily those of North America, although I am expanding to other continents as well. My interests lie mainly in the mostly terrestrial subfamily Orchidoideae, as well as terrestrial members of the Epidendroideae, though all orchids fascinate me.

Since I've joined iNaturalist, I've gained an extraordinary wealth of knowledge about orchids from fellow members all around the globe. I strongly believe in the value of sharing scientific knowledge and encouraging others to care for the environment and am thankful that iNaturalist provides a platform for those ideals to thrive. Please feel free to tag me on any orchid observations you have!

During my time here, I've also encountered and acquired some understanding about other non-orchid native organisms. I'm fascinated by chaparral flora and fauna, especially those genera that have extensively radiated in California, and in particular, I've acquired a decent understanding of Arctostaphylos species. I never would have expected to learn so much when first joining this platform; iNaturalist is truly a place for learning!
