May 2- June 23, 2019
My truest inspiration comes from nature – especially plant-life.
I believe my most valuable contributions to this world will manifest from my creativity, applied both to scientific questions and creation of art.
A huge joy for me is watching my U Maryland students (Medicinal Plants of the Amazon) which is taught in Peru, begin to love the rainforest.
Ideally – I hope the art and science I do – will help lead towards more sustainable agriculture, more integrated health sciences and the awareness that the respectful stewardship of our natural eco-systems is imperative to our own survival, health, and well-being.
