|Welcome! I am a Wisconsin resident and graduate student in entomology at the University of Wisconsin, studying with Claudio Gratton. My work focuses on wild pollinators (specifically bumble bees) in agricultural systems, as well as insect ecology and conservation.
Outside of my academic and professional pursuits, I enjoy rock climbing (bouldering), cycling (road and mountain), cooking & baking, eating donuts, taking photographs, and exploring new places. I’m particularly fond of Wisconsin: the beautiful four seasons, abundance of fresh, local foods, amazing cycling, and a diverse and dynamic capital city make this state a wonderful place to call home.
