In 2020, Lily was selected for a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program with Brooklyn College, funded by the National Science Foundation. The REU focused on ecology within the urban environment, and there, Lily conducted soil microbiology in green infrastructure research under Dr. Theodore Muth. Lily continued this research for their senior undergraduate thesis entitled “Maximizing Urban Green Roof Potential Through the Understanding of Microbial Composition.” Lily plans on pursuing a career in science-based community agriculture in New York City.
