Other Ethnobotany

Ethnobotany: The scientific study of the traditional knowledge and customs of a people concerning plants and their medical, religious, and other uses.

When not working in a museum setting, I have explored a diverse range of fields exploring the different aspects of plants and their relationships with people.

These opportunities were often my opportunity to "apply" my ethnobotanical knowledge, facilitating relationships to plants in order to address topics such as food security, mental health, historical understanding, and a general increase in appreciation of the plants we consume.
