Wallis Robinson, MS

Wallis worked as an undergraduate research assistant in Peay lab from 2012 to 2015, during which they discovered an enduring enthusiasm for forest mycology. After completing their undergraduate studies at Stanford, Wallis earned a master's degree from Humboldt State University, where they studied the effects of drought on conifers across northern California. Wallis currently works at the University of California Cooperative Extension in Humboldt and Del Norte counties, where they work on projects addressing issues in forest health, a field that combines their three favorite subjects: plants, fungi, and bugs. In their spare time, Wallis runs, dyes things with mushrooms, and plays a lot of tuba.
