I am currently a first-year PhD student in the Adler lab at UMass Amherst. I am interested in how plants interact simultaneously with mutualists and antagonists. I study how plant damage affects nectar chemistry, and how changes in nectar chemistry modify interactions between plants, pollinators and pathogens of pollinators. In the future, I plan to investigate how nectar chemistry affects the structure of pollination networks. I am also a writer and managing editor for That’s Life Science Blog (thatslifesci.com).
