I was born and raised in northern California where I received an undergraduate degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology and a PhD in Plant Biology, both from UC Davis. My previous experiences have included working as researcher, science-policy advisor, and educator. Through my work I have been recognized as a Fulbright scholar, U.S. NSF award recipient, and California Council on Science and Technology fellow. Currently, I am a professor of viticulture working as part of both Bordeaux Sciences Agro and the Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin.
