Project role: 

As a Curatorial Assistant in the PBI: Solanum grant, my role is primarily a technical one. Along with Kim Watson, I am responsible for cataloguing the entire Solanum collection at the Steere Herbarium of the New York Botanical Garden (NY), which totals more than 40,000 specimens. In addition to cataloguing, I have been actively photographing representative specimens for all Solanum species currently held at NY. Some of my other responsibilities include general curation of NY's Solanum collection, digitization of photographic slides, and processing specimens for loan and exchange.
