insect ecology + conservation
Hi! I am an insect ecologist passionate about bumble bee natural history, community ecology, and population genetics.
Recent past and near future
Based in Madison, WI. Since January 2021, I have been working toward a PhD in Dr. Claudio Gratton's lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My dissertation research focuses on whether prairie restorations are an effective method for long-term conservation of bumble bees and how prescribed fire affects them.

Texas-born and Wisconsin-raised. I had the privilege of having access to the outdoors from a young age, where my curiosity about and love for the world around me was fostered. I earned my B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016, where I double majored in Entomology and Environmental Studies.
