Sunia has long been interested in natural history: birds, plants, and recently lichens and bryophytes. She’s volunteered as a natural history guide, conservation easement monitor, oak babysitter, bird surveyor and webmaster. She recently retired from network engineering, but remains interested in data visualization and data usability. She’s currently working on various lichen projects in the OSU Botany and Plant Pathology department, including an online interactive key for Common Macrolichens of the Pacific Northwest. One of her main retirement goals is to continue to turn her garden from an old horse pasture to a biodiversity mini-hotspot, including a small native meadow. She’s also interested in all things boats and water.
