Research interests: I am interested in the nesting behavior of wild bees. From 2015-2016, I participated in a study that used natural trap-nests in order to determine the habitat requirements of native stem-nesting bees around Minnesota. I am currently running a project sampling bees from local community and vegetable gardens. I think that public education and strong local communities are crucial to conservation efforts.
