Aiona is an undergraduate in Integrative Biology and started working in the Bruns lab in June of 2006. She originally became interested in studying mushrooms because she needed one thing to be grateful for when it rains, a plan which was enormously successful, spawned a passion for fungi, and ultimately brought her to the Bruns Lab. She believes that, "the purpose of science is to advance the frontiers of ignorance", a goal that she is honored to have the privilege of contributing to.
Aiona worked in the Bruns lab during the summer of 2006 and returned to her studies for the Fall semester of 2006.
