Hi there! I'm Emily Siegler, I am currently a Junior at the University of St. Francis majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry. I am very involved in research here at my university. This current project is the second independent research project that I have done. The project I conducted was "Competition and Population Dynamics in the Kleptoparasitic Spider Argyrodes elevatus in the webs of Nephila clavipes". Since that project, I have fallen head over heals in love with research. It truly is a passion and a hobby of mine and it is something that I hope to pursue as a career once I am finished with my degree.
