Jaimie Kenney

McNair Scholar Jaimie

Jaimie Kenney is a post-baccalaureate student at Eastern Washington University, pursuing a B.S. in Biology. The McNair program is helping her realize her dream of obtaining a Ph.D. in plant pathology. Her main research interest is in how microorganisms impact the health of plants, for better or for worse. She aims to apply knowledge of plant-microbe interactions in agriculture or restoration of natural lands in order to mitigate the negative effects of global climate change on human civilization and natural ecosystems. She is also passionate about bridging the gap between the scientific community and the general public, believing that everyone can play an important role in the scientific process and that we must all collaborate in order to navigate the many social and environmental challenges currently facing society. Jaimie holds a B.A. from Eastern Washington University in Spanish and spends her free time practicing other languages and riding bikes.
