Karly Chin (Undergrad)
Karly is a senior in Human Biology, and a Master student in Environmental Communication. She is a relatively new fungi enthusiast and is especially interested in their mycorrhizal relationships with trees. She is currently working to sequence fungal specimens collected and logged in iNaturalist, a citizen science app, to help create a database with which we will be able to better map and understand fungal species ranges. Karly also helps with a variety of projects around the lab, including greenhouse work and other fungal sequencing projects. In the future, she hopes to work in conservation and resource management– anything to keep her outside! In her free time, Karly likes painting, backpacking, and playing soccer.
