Undergraduate thesis: Reimagining “Nature”: Diversifying Agriculture and Developing an Integrated Understanding of Humans and the Environment
Broadly, I am interested in applying ecological and interdisciplinary research to further the sustainability of agricultural systems. I am particularly interested in pollination ecology, specifically understanding how local management and landscape features interact to influence wild pollinators and how pollinator behavior impacts the delivery of pollination services. My thesis project focuses on the ways in which pollinator plantings and habitat availability impact the richness, abundance, and nesting success of wild bees in pickling cucumber.
