Hello! My name is Rachel and I currently live in Carbondale, IL. I recently finished a PhD in Forestry studying soil carbon in Brazil and now work as an Assistant Professor of Soil Fertility at Southern Illinois University - Carbondale. I love to road bike and bike tour, go for a run, read, make crafty things, and just hang out and have a drink with folks on a front porch. I love meeting new people when traveling so this seems like a way better option than staying in a hotel!
