I am a PhD Candidate at Cornell University interested in wild bee conservation and agroecology. I am co-advised by Prof. Danforth and Prof. McArt.
I approach pollinator health as a lens for understanding right relationship with the land, and strongly value socially just and culturally appropriate ecosystem management.
In my research, I use the tools of community ecology to ask how the diverse wild pollinator communities in apple orchards use the resources of nearby forest habitats over time and space.
I spend a lot of time climbing into tree-top canopies to explore bee behavior sky-high!
