M.S. Entomology, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Current

My interests focus on invasive agricultural insect pests and the strategies used to manage them. I have a strong passion for beetles, particularly those in the scarab and longhorn families. My masters research in the Guédot lab studies attract-and-kill methods in Wisconsin vineyards as a management strategy for the invasive Japanese beetle (Popillia japonica).
I enjoy getting outdoors for hiking, camping, fishing, and photography. I also enjoy scary movies, breweries/wineries, baking, and puzzles.
