Patricia is a PhD student in mycology at SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry in Syracuse, NY. As a fungal taxonomist, she names and describes new species of fungi. Patricia spends most of her time slinking through the forests of the Americas, looking through her microscope and fighting the white cisheteropatriarchy. She chooses to celebrate the unloved or overlooked organisms of the earth in both academic and creative writings, and uses scientific concepts as a lens for social commentary.
