I am broadly interested conservation ecology and habitat management. Though I have studied many taxa, I have a special place in my heart for bees, which I have been working with since I started graduate school. For my dissertation research, I sought to identify high-quality nesting and overwintering habit for bumble bees using the tools of population and movement ecology. Currently, I am working on a project exploring the impacts of controlled burns on bumble bees and the flowering plants they rely on.
Painting, baking, running, hiking, drinking coffee, reading good books, hanging out with my houseplants, and spending lots of time outside.
