Research Motivation

          While attending the Conservation Genetics and DNA Barcoding and Bioinformatics classes in the Harlem DNA lab, and field sessions in the Hudson River, I developed the foundation for my project. During this time, I learned about DNA barcoding and unique organisms in the Hudson River. From previous studies, involving the Urban Heat Island effect, human interactions highly affects plants, and from there I wanted to look into how that may affect the diversity of vegetation in the Hudson.
