As a Peter Buck postdoctoral fellow, I am conducting archival research in the Anthropology and Botany departments at the NMNH to further my research on indigenous Canela historical and modern-day gardening practices, ethnobotanical classification, and biodiversity maintenance. I am interested in the relationships indigenous gardeners form with their crops throughout the life courses of both people and plants. I am working within the Recovering Voices Program, which focuses on sustaining and revitalizing indigenous languages and knowledge throughout the world.
