As an ecologist who is passionate about biodiversity and sustainability, I aim to leverage science to gain a greater understanding of pressing environmental stressors and contribute to evidence-based solutions. I have worked in pollinator disease ecology, tropical ecology, climate change, and human-mediated invasive species spread.
I am currently an NSF Postdoctoral Research in Biology Fellow working with Dr. Lynn Adler at UMass Amherst and Dr. Katja Poveda at Cornell University. I completed my PhD in Dr. Scott McArt's lab at the Entomology department of Cornell University in 2020.
Outside of work, I can usually be found hiking, dancing, and daydreaming about epic meals I plan on making.
