My experience in different fields and working with a diversity of scientists and scientific techniques has inspired me to explore plant and pollinator interactions and plant reproduction in the Mid-Atlantic US. I obtained my BSc. in Zoology at the University of Florida and MSc. in Entomology at the University of Delaware. My thesis focused on sustainable varroa mite management practices of honeybees, and how brood-cycle interruptions in a colony's life-cycle affect colony dynamics. During my time as a technician at the University of Florida, USDA-APHIS and Penn State Entomology Center for Pollinator Research in the López-Uribe Lab. I have worked on a variety of projects from cucurbitaceae volatiles and lasioglossum barcoding, to community science and honey bee identification with morphometrics (FABIS & USDA-ID).
