He began working in the Peay Lab since the fall of 2015 and is interested in many aspects of mycology, from fungal pathogens to mutualists and everything in between. In the past Nic has conducted research on the model organism Daphnia obtusa and hopes to continue his research centered in biology. Nic completed an honors thesis which examined the ectomycorrhizal and endophytic associates of 4 species of tree in Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve.
