M.Sc., Ph.D., Entomology, Penn State University
I am an entomologist by training, having over ten years of experience conducting research in diverse agroecosystems, laboratory settings, and across insect taxa. I'm passionate about translating research into practice and designing sustainable agroecosystems.
My contributions to this immediate project will be supporting project administration, timeline and deadline management, and logistics, all of which I have extensive experience carrying out in my previous research. Moving forward, we seek to understand how our intended soil amendments may influence the aboveground insect community, e.g., beneficial insects and pests, and I will provide guidance on this focus area.
