Multidimensional mycologist Danielle Stevenson shares her knowledge and experience, past and present, from starting a DIY mushroom spawn business and conducting community bioremediation research to pursuing a PhD in environmental toxicology focusing on how mycorrhizal fungi regulate plant uptake of heavy metals. We begin by discussing her current research which utilizes a mix of microscopy, genetics and chemistry to assess the functions of arbuscular mycorrhizae in different types of soil. Danielle also talks about her journey into using fungi for managing community waste streams and we explore topics in mycoremediation, educational outreach for mycology, grassroots collaborations with academic labs and approaching science from an outsider's perspective.
