DR. RACHEL A. KOCH

I study the ecology and evolution of fungi. My research utilizes a combination of field work and specimen collection with cutting-edge molecular techniques and computational analyses. Currently, I am a postdoc in the lab of Dr. Joshua R. Herr at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Before this, I was in the lab of Dr. Cathie Aime at Purdue University, where I earned my Ph.D. in 2017. And even before this, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from the University of Notre Dame. Explore this website for more info on my research.
