I joined the Gratton Lab in May 2019 as the project coordinator for WiBee: The Wisconsin Wild Bee App. WiBee is a citizen science project and smartphone app developed by the Gratton Lab. With this new tool, we can explore the contribution of wild bees to crop pollination in Wisconsin and provide better pollination management recommendations to growers.
My work for the past 5 years has focused on evaluating and supporting landowner outreach and natural resources management decision-making in Wisconsin, working with Wisconsin Sea Grant, the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and UW-Madison Department of Life Sciences Communication.
Personal interests: Cross-country skiing and ice skating, drawing, gardening, camping, cooking, and my latest interest (fear conquering activity): scuba diving!
