Entomology and Nematology Department, University of Florida
I am a PhD student at the University of Florida working with Dr. Adam Dale, and I am passionate about creating prosperous spaces for people and planet in our rapidly expanding cities. My research addresses this goal by exploring plant-insect interactions in urban forests to understand how we can promote ecosystem services, conserve beneficial insects, and reduce harm from insect "pests" in places where people live. Collaborating with the public inspires me to produce results that inform real management decisions, and I am always seeking ways to cultivate relationships that strengthen science in my community.
