I'm an applied insect ecologist currently working as a postdoctoral associate for Cornell AgriTech. I am broadly interested in insect ecology and agroecosystems. I am particularly interested in how practices to improve sustainability or regeneration of agricultural land impact arthropods and in improving management of agricultural pests to be more profitable, reliable, and less harmful to the environment.
I love spending as much of my work day in the field as possible and finding solutions to grower-driven issues in agriculture. In addition to applied research, I am passionate about effective science communication and improving the use of science in policy- and decision-making.
