I am a Conservation Botanist at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden and a PhD candidate in Botany at Claremont Graduate University. I previously studied the flora of a little place called Owens Peak in the southern Sierra. I now study monkeyflowers in the family Phrymaceae. My research interests include floristics of the southern California, conservation of biodiversity, and rarity and endemism. To learn more about my research and interests please feel free to explore this site. If you have questions please feel free to contact me via e-mail (naomee AT gmail.com).
