Rachel Mallinger

Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am an entomologist and pollination ecologist currently doing a post-doc in Fargo ND. I received my PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I studied how landscape structure and habit management affected populations of wild bees within apple orchards. My work utilizes approaches from landscape ecology, community ecology, and conservation biology to understand the factors that shape pollinator communities with consequences for plant-pollinator interactions and pollination rates. I am passionate about applying my science to agricultural management and to insect conservation.
