Broadly, I am interested in the ecology and conservation of beneficial insects, in particular insect pollinators. More specifically, I am interested in bumble bee life history, nesting habitat, and their responses to local- and landscape- factors such as prairie restoration and how these insects intersect with people’s lives. My goal is to answer scientific questions through interdisciplinary collaborations and to make the research accessible and relevant to more than just the scientific community. Therefore, I aim to actively integrate racial justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, outreach, and mentorship into my research.
