B.S Physical/Environment Geography focused on landscape ecology with minors in GIS and wildlife & fisheries science. (anticipated 2020)
I am interested in landscape ecology and the function that pollinators have on the world around us. Since joining the Grozinger Lab, I have aided in the creation of various maps, conducted soil sampling, and collected, processed, and pinned thousands of bee specimens from New York state. I am familiar with GIS software, entomology lab techniques, and plant care.
My research focuses on the relationship between soils and pollinator behavior. In collaboration with Melanie Kammerer Allen, I have grown two species of plants in a multitude of sampled soils from the Finger Lakes region of New York to understand their influences on plant growth, floral resources, and pollinator visitation.
