Teresa joined the Taylor lab in February of 1999. She was a post doc and is interested in the molecular population genetics of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Continuing her work on the biology and evolution of AM fungi, Teresa moved in November (2004) to the Plant Pathology Department at Cornell University, where she is currently an assistant professor.
